Dental office, new sales business okayed for rezonings on opposite ends of State St.
|Monday night, the North Vernon City Council unanimously agreed help clear the way for a new dental office to be built along North State Street and the razing of four homes at 127, 121, 117 and 115. They agreed to rezone the properties to Commercial Planned Business 4-1 with Councilor Jerry Lamb abstaining because his realtor office was involved in the sale.|
Dr. Allison Biehle explained she will construct her office on the busy thoroughfare starting next year. The closing for the properties was held last week and she will take possession on June 17.
For now, Biehle plans to "make a nice lawn" at the site and begin building her state-of-the art office in early 2021 "right in the middle of town.
Councilors were obviously pleased with the plan, saying it will definitely clean up that area of town.
A second property on the opposite end of town will also be cleaned up. Eric Pettit told the governors he plans to construct a pole barn at the rear of 855 South State Street, where the bowling alley used to be.
Pettit, who worked with his father at their former Polaris dealership on State Rd. 7 South, said he will offer "whatever I can sell" at the site. That could include vehicles, ATVs and motorcycles.
His petition to rezone the property to Commercial Planned Business also passed unanimously.
Two other rezoning requests were heard:
* Phillip and Donita Layman's request to rezone 112 E Main St., NV from Commercial to Residential Single Family passed with little discussion.
* Christina Manning's petition to rezone 54 N Gum St., NV from Residential to Commercial Planned Business for a home daycare barely passed, 3-2.
Councilors Lamb and Brian Hatfield voted "no" because they were concerned about traffic on the street and putting a business in a residential neighborhood.
The petition passed with the stipulation that if the the home is sold or the daycare goes out of business, it will revert back to Residential.
