City council member John Lyda at the Planning and Zoning Commission.
The Hoover Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved two new subdivisions in Ross Bridge and three new subdivisions in the Lake Cyrus communities during its Monday, Aug. 10 meeting.
The commission approved the following actions:
- A request by Jonathan Belcher, president at Signature Homes, who sought preliminary plat approval for Northampton Phase 5, a proposed 35-lot subdivision at the end of Jessup Lane in Ross Bridge. The lot is owned by Ross Bridge K, LLC and is zoned as a planned single-family district.
- Scott Rohrer of Signature Homes’ request for final plat approval for Sawyer Trail, formerly Ross Bridge Cottages, which includes 16 lots and one pool lot. That area is also zoned as a single family district.
- Rohrer’s request for final plat approval for a resurvey of two lots at Lake Cyrus. The resurvey is to create a storm easement.
- Final plat approval for subdivisions at Lake Cyrus. One involved a proposed nine-lot subdivision; the other will see construction of a 25-lot subdivision. Both are zoned as planned single family districts.
In other action, the Hoover Planning and Zoning Commission shot down a request by Pastor Roberto Andino for conditional use of Christian Pentecostal Church at 3133 Lorna Road, Suite 109 in the Chapel Hill subdivision.
“The church case is dead because he didn’t show up,” said John Lyda, a Hoover City Councilman who serves on the city planning commission. “If the church wants approval, he will have to reapply.”
Now that they have gotten map approvals from the city planning and zoning commission, Lyda said the developers can proceed in Lake Cyrus and Ross Bridge
“They can now start to get the necessary permits to begin construction,” he said.
