Planning Commission OK’s Zoning, Lighter CIP

BLYTHEWOOD – Monday night the Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend to Council the rezoning application of Dusty Broom for 11.43 acres on Blythewood Road near Fulmer Road from Rural to Community Commercial (CC). The property is home to Broom Heating and Air, which has been in business at that location for three generations, Town Administrator John Perry said.

Perry said that Broom has petitioned to have the property, which currently lies within the county, annexed into the Town limits.

Perry also updated the Commission on the Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) for the coming fiscal year. Perry said the 2013-2014 would be a “retrenchment” year for the CIP as the Town takes a step back and reviews the projects it has completed and plans for the projects i t will undertake in the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

“It’s a year to take a breather,” Perry said, “to review and make sure we can finish the things we’ve started.”

The proposed 2013-2014 budget for the CIP reflects that, going from $232,000 in the last fiscal year to $60,000 in the coming fiscal year. Among the projects to be tackled this coming year, Perry said, were the second phase of playground equipment for Doko Meadows Park and the second phase of updating the Town’s Christmas decorations. The Commission voted unanimously to send Perry’s recommendations for the CIP to the full Council.
