Nathaniel and Jacqueline Phillips hope the third time at the Franklin County Planning and Zoning Commission is the charm.
The Phillipses are once again on the agenda for the plan board. The meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. at the county government center in Union.
The Phillipses should find out the fate of their CUP request that was first discussed by the board in September. The CUP request was for a special event, occasional, in the community development zoning district. The property is located at Wild Plum Valley Road and Highway N.
The plan for a haunted hayride was tabled in September because of an error with the application. The area designed for parking on the site plan wasn’t on the application, meaning it wasn’t included in the permit and couldn’t be used by the business.
That issue was addressed in October, but the plan board opted to send the request to its review committee for further investigation. At the October meeting, Highway Administrator Ron Williams said since the month was more than half over and the plans for opening in 2017 were already squelched, the commission should take its time.
He suggested reviewing issues such as parking, security, and alcohol. The review committee met earlier this month meaning the board should finally be able to make a decision.
Also on the agenda is a request for a development plan for a planned unit development (PUD). The PUD is for the Villas at Franklin County Country Club in the community development zoning district.
The property is located off Boardmoor Drive off Highway A.
