If local developer Ron Cardwell of Ron Cardwell Construction has his way, once the fall arrives, a pair of new two-bedroom, two-bath triplexes will be built at the intersection of A Street and East Van Every Street.
That was the plan unveiled Monday evening at a special meeting of the Seymour Planning & Zoning (P&Z) Commission, as Cardwell met with P&Z officials about his request for a zoning change and the site.
Cardwell told the P&Z board that his plan is build two triplexes on his lot measuring 231 feet by 124 feet, meaning each duplex will sit on land with measurements of 115 feet by 124 feet.
Both triplexes will face A Street.
They will all be two-bedroom, two-bath units without a garage, each with roughly 1,000 square feet in living space.
“It’s pretty much the same foorplan as the duplexes I built a year ago on North Main Street and on North Commercial Street,” Cardwell told P&Z board members.
When asked by Alicia Hagen, the board’s chairman, when he would start the project, Cardwell’s answer came quick.
“Immediately,” he responded. “As soon as I get a thumbs up from the city on this, we’ll start pronto. I don’t think they will be ready by the start of school, but I do feel they can be ready by the start of fall.”
After a motion and a second, Cardwell’s request for a zoning change was approved 6-0.
Next up is a public hearing, which arrives at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6, at Seymour City Hall, where the P&Z board will officially make its recommendation on the change to the Seymour Board of Aldermen.
The aldermen then will meet at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 8, to act on the P&Z board’s recommendation.
Final approval, if it is given, comes at this meeting.
A public notice on the July 6 hearing appears on Page 6 in this week’s newspaper.
