Flats on Memorial Planned Unit Development
Based on the March 22, 2020 Order from the Ohio Department of Health, City Council is evaluating the status of Council meetings during the month of April. This may impact the scheduled public hearing. More information will be available as the meeting approaches.
On January 2, 2020, Flats on Memorial LLC submitted an application for rezoning 18.939 acres of vacant land between N. Memorial Drive and N. Columbus Street/Nelson Road. This property is located to the east of the Big Sandy Superstore and behind Burger King, KFC, and other nearby commercial establishments along N. Memorial Drive.
The property is currently zoned Residential Single-Family (RS-3) and Commercial General (CG), but the petitioner has proposed to change the zoning to Residential Multi-Family with a Planned Unit Development (RM-2/PUD) overlay (see explanation of "Planned Unit Development" below).
The first step for this zoning change request is for it to go beforeLancaster City Planning Commission. Once Planning Commission makes its recommendation, that recommendation, along with the application, will be forwarded to City Council for consideration.

Once City Council has conducted their public hearing, they have the ability to vote on the application.
