A request to rezone 16.7 acres at 1400 Lexington Road - property that is part of the estate of the late Dr. Charles Caldwell - from agricultural-residential (AR-1) to highway commercial (HC) will be the subject of a public hearing by the Danville-Boyle County Planning and Zoning Commission at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the first-floor meeting room at Danville City Hall.
On the application for the zone change, the owner of the property is listed as Nancy Caldwell and the applicant for the zone change is listed as Red Elephant LLC (limited liability corporation.)
The property is bordered by Lexington Road, Boone Trail, the properties of Michael E. Mulholland and Scott B. Scutchfield, and the remainder of the Caldwell farm.
A plat submitted with the Red Elephant application indicates that, if the zone change is granted, the Caldwell property would be divided into 14 tracts, ranging from a half-acre to two acres, with most of the tracts measuring more or less an acre each. The entrance to the proposed development would be built across Lexington Road from Grabruck Road, and two streets would be constructed on which the 14 lots would front.
