New medical office proposed near Daisy Lane in New Albany

Council agenda light for tonight’s meeting


The New Albany City Council will cast initial votes on a proposal to construct a new medical facility at the intersection of Green Valley Road and Daisy Lane tonight. 

The request for the doctor’s office building received a unanimous recommendation from the New Albany Plan Commission. 

Councilwoman Shirley Baird is the council’s liaison on the plan commission and the sponsor of the zoning request. 

The proposal is to switch the classification from urban residential to a Planned Unit Development District for the sole purpose of constructing the medical facility. 

With other medical offices in the vicinity, Baird said the new facility makes sense for the location. 

“It’s just going to be a two-story building,” she said. “It looked very attractive and well thought out.” 

The council is slated to hold first and second readings on the PUDD request tonight, and the third and final ballot will likely be cast by the body on July 1. 

Baird and city planning officials weren’t immediately able to identify the doctor who will be moving into the office if approved Wednesday, as the applicant for the PUDD was listed as ONC, LLC. 

Baird said based on what was discussed during the plan commission meeting, one doctor would own and occupy the building though more physicians will likely join the practice in the future. 

She said the doctor practices locally, but is operating out of a temporary building where his space is limited. 

It’s a light agenda for the council, as the PUDD measure is the only voting item of business scheduled for the meeting. 

It will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the third floor Assembly Room of the City-County Building.
