The West Chester Township Land Use Planning Committee and the West Chester Township Zoning Commission will host a joint meeting on March 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to accept public comment on proposed updates to the West Chester Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
The regularly scheduled Zoning Commission meeting will follow, starting at 6:30 p.m. The zoning meeting could attract a crowd, as it currently has a proposed shopping center, which would be near a residential area, on its agenda.
The shopping center, Crossings of Beckett, would be anchored by a Kroger Marketplace and be located near the intersection of Tylersville and 747. WestChesterBuzz.com will have more on the development before and after the meeting on March 18.
Residents, concerned about the Land Use Plan, can see the revisions at www.WestChesterOH.org and at the West Chester Township Community Development Department, 9577 Beckett Road, Suite 100, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
When recommending its changes, The Land Use Planning Committee takes into consideration each corridor, current land use designations, road projects and changes in terms of development since the previous document was adopted, according to Barbara Wilson, public information officer for West Chester Township.
The Land Use Planning Committee is a seven-member volunteer board composed of West Chester residents appointed by the Board of Trustees. The Committee ultimately takes the proposed Land Use Plan to the West Chester Board of Trustees for adoption.
The last Land Use Plan was last updated in 2004.
