In what was an abnormally short meeting, the Spring Hill Planning Commission approved only a few new development projects during its meeting Monday night.
No less than five projects that were expected to be voted on had applicants who had either failed to provide the required documentation on time, or failed to show at the previous meeting altogether.
Notable projects absent from Monday’s meeting included the storage facility proposed to be built on Beechcroft Road, as well as the business center proposed to be built off of Port Royal Road.
Nevertheless, the commission did approve a few projects Monday, which you can find below.
Great White Express Car Wash / 1.35 acres
Submitted by Civil Engineering Services, Great White Express Car Wash is proposed to be built on Main Street behind the Arby’s and just northeast of the Crossings. The project will be the third car wash in the city with an automated car wash tunnel.
With a site area of roughly 1.25 acres, the car wash would offer 15 self-service vacuum stations underneath partially covered parking stalls.
Included in the building’s design were details of the facility, which would have “varying panel colors and flat roof sections with an opaque curved roof over the car wash tunnel,” with the roof being a canopy-type structure.
Civil Engineering Services had its request for site plan approval passed by the Planning Commission Monday night.
Sawgrass Phase 1 Section 1 / 23 single-family lots
Submitted by WES Engineers & Surveyors, SawGrass Phase 1 Section 1 is the proposed first phase of a new subdivision development, located on Tom Lunn Road, just north of Port Royal Park.
Spanning over an area of 47.42 acres, this first phase of development would include the construction of 23 single-family lots, with sidewalks planned on both Tom Lunn Road, as well as on both sides of the roads on all internal streets.
First introduced to the city in April of 2017, Alderman Matt Fitterer took issue with the fact that the project has taken two years to get off the ground, and ultimately voted against its approval. Nevertheless, WES Engineers & Surveyors’ request for final plat approval was passed by the Planning Commission in a vote of 4 – 1.
Hardin’s Landing Section 4 / 98 single-family lots
Submitted by WES Engineers & Surveyors, Hardin’s Landing Section 4 is the proposed fourth phase of development for the Hardin’s Landing residential development, located north of Reserve Boulevard and west of Port Royal Road.
Spanning an area of 35.13 acres, this phase of development would involve the construction of 98 single-family lots, and won’t feature any sidewalks – save for one instance on Commonwealth Drive, per a previously reached agreement with the city.
WES Engineers & Surveyors had its request for preliminary plat approval passed by the Planning Commission Monday night.
