Township rezonings under consideration

The Warren County Regional Planning Commission Executive Committee is scheduled to consider two rezonings during a meeting on Thursday at 1 p.m. in the Commissioner’s Meeting Room of the county administration building, 406 Justice Drive in Lebanon.

The rezonings involve property owned by Six Eagles Enterprises in Clearcreek Twp. and Elijah Rapp in Union Twp.

The Six Eagles property is 0.4 acres at 3400 Ohio 741 to be rezoned from rural residential to office for reuse of an unoccupied single-family dwelling for relocation of a private law office.

The Rapp property is on the agenda due to additional standards drafted by Highland Developer Partners in collaboration with RPC staff on 127 acres off Columbia and U.S. 42 to be rezoned from light industrial to residential for the development of 61 homes in a planned unit development. The city of Lebanon has opposed this development, due to concerns about implications for the adjoining industrial park and plans to develop a rail spur for commercial use. The revised proposal calls for no connection to Grant Drive, but improves the Columbia Road intersection by increasing sight distance, allowing traffic to turn both left and right.
