NEW ALBANY —
Joseph Moore spoke during the public meeting and said some people depend on such clinics for pain medication because they do not have health insurance.
“I don’t know if you should take action on some rumor that a doctor is going to open a clinic in Floyd County,” he said. He said not everyone who goes to a pain clinic is an addict.
New McDonald’s approved
The plan commission unanimously approved a request to construct a McDonald’s restaurant at LaFollette Station in Floyds Knobs.
The McDonald’s will resemble the one in Clarksville and have 42 parking spaces and two drive-thru lanes. The front of the restaurant will face Lawrence Banet Road. Construction is scheduled to be completed in June, according to Lopp.
Lafayette Ridge extension denied
By an 8-1 vote, the plan commission denied a 12-month extension request of the primary approval for Lafayette Ridge Subdivision, located at Scottsville and Fertig Creek roads.
The development, which originally consisted of 227 lots on 127 acres, was given primary approval in 2006, but changes have since scaled the project back. Many members said it’s time for the developer, Robert Lynn, to scrap the plan and come back with a new one. There are new owners involved and the plan has changed.
“This does not exist the way it was approved. We cannot approve anything because it does not exist,” Loughmiller said.
“This is not the one we passed,” said plan commission member Chuck Freiberger when looking at the revised drawing. “I think time is up. I think it can still be developed, but as a new proposal. Let’s start at the beginning.”
