Lebanon Planning Commission re-approved unanimously the site plan for the new Lebanon High School to be built on property off Hickory Ridge Road and Leeville Pike at Tuesday’s regular meeting.
Planning commission member Rick Jones made the motion to approve the site plan and it was seconded by David Taylor.
Planners also voted unanimously to recommend to the Lebanon City Council the renaming of Blue Devil Drive to Stadium Drive.
Planners approved the site for the new Lebanon Special School District middle school to be built on Leeville Pike adjacent to College Hills Church of Christ.
Students, parents and others have been participating in a contest to name the new school. LSSD officials are expected to make a decision on its name soon.
In other business, planners approved:
• Rezoning the Hagan property’s 5.21 acres on Leeville Pike from AG to B-3
• Annexing the Powell Grove right-of-way from Highway 70 to the current city limits. Commissioner of Public Safety Billy Weeks said there was confusion about the property for the public, and the Police Department had received various calls regarding it. He noted he was opposed to the annexation.
• Final plat for Cumberland Center, Phase 1 on Highway 231 South. There was quite a bit of discussion among planners regarding this item. There are seven lots and it has the potential for eight to nine more. The discussion was about a turning lane and a sidewalk. Panel members Rick James and Mark McClesky said they were worried that pedestrians would not be safe if there was not a sidewalk (they thought pedestrians might be confused on where to walk). James and McClesky voted against approval.
• Final plat for the Tuck-Campbell subdivision on 2.23 acres at 103 Babb Court.
• Site plan for Storage Solutions at 103 Babb Court. The facility would be 17,925 square feet. Some changes were made to the dumpster and evergreens will be planted.
• Final plat for Heritage Trace at StoneBridge on Shady Stone Way. This phase will include 20 units.
