Ranson Road Rezoning

City Council gave initial approval to a rezoning request for four acres of land near Southeast Ranson Road and Southeast Bailey Road. The rezoning request is to allow construction of a new single-family home. The four acres is part of a larger 18-acre tract, with the remaining 14 acres retaining its existing agricultural zoning. An appropriate septic system must be approved by the Jackson County Health Department prior to the approval of a building permit for the home.

New Chipotle Concept

City Council gave initial approval to a preliminary development plan for a Chipotle located near Southwest Oldham Parkway and Southwest Third Street. The former Pizza Hut restaurant will be demolished to make way for the new Chipotle. The restaurant will be a new concept where customers order ahead online for drive-thru pickup or curbside pickup. Customers can also order inside, but there will be no inside seating. The only available seating will be a small outdoor area.

Ranson Landing

City Council gave initial approval to a rezoning request and conceptual development plan for Ranson Landing, a mixed-use development near Southeast Oldham Parkway and Southeast Ranson Road. The rezoning request is for approximately 26 acres. The conceptual development plan includes a convenience store, commercial space, 25 fourplexes, contractor garages, storage units and a drive-thru restaurant. The proposed storage units would feature a commercial exterior to blend in with the surrounding area. The developer must submit a preliminary development plan before any construction may begin, which will include a public hearing.

American Recovery Plan Act

City Council gave initial approval to a grant agreement between the City and the Department of the Treasury to accept $8,310,882 in funding through the American Rescue Plan Act. The funds are intended to respond to COVID-19 and mitigate the negative economic impacts of the pandemic. The City will work to prioritize projects that have the greatest impact and align with the City’s strategic, comprehensive and consolidated plans.
