HARRODSBURG - Owners of 12 acres at the intersection of the Harrodsburg bypass and Industry Road want it zoned for industrial use.
Curtis and Lesa Willmott requested the zone change at Monday night's meeting of the Greater Harrodsburg/Mercer County Planning and Zoning Commission so the land on the northwest corner of the intersection can be sold and developed as an industrial site. It currently is zoned residential.
In a public hearing, Curtis Willmott explained that the property is adjacent to two residential lots in Shannon Oaks subdivision and another lot that is zoned industrial. It is adjacent to property owned by Harrodsburg United Methodist Church.
Questioned about the possible use for the property, Willmott said he had not spoken to anyone concerning the sale and development of the land. He said he had had one inquiry from a person interested in putting a lumber yard there, but that person wanted only seven acres.
