Public Hearing to be Continued in Progress Until March 14th Zoning Commission Meeting

February 14, 2022

The Lawson Property (Case 2021-537) – Preliminary PUD Plan


Recently, Silverman & Company Inc., on behalf of Charlie & Bonnie Lawson, requested a change to the way the property off of Tylersville Road is zoned and used. The formal application received by the township for the Lawson property (Pimlico Pointe) proposes to change the 25.37 acre property from Residential Single-Family (R-SF) use to Neighborhood Business Planned Unit Development (N-B PUD).


When a Planned Unit Development (or PUD) is involved, a rezoning request must go through two stages. In the first stage, the preliminary plan is reviewed and evaluated; the second stage involves another review and evaluation of the final (site) plan. The Lawson Property application is currently at the middle of the first stage (Deerfield Township Zoning Commission Review).


It was indicated to staff one (1) zoning commission member will be absent from the January 10, 2022 meeting (Mr. Tim Rowell). The zoning commission is comprised of five (5) board members. When there are four (4) members present, the vote must be majority [three (3) yes] to move forward as a recommendation of approval to the Deerfield Township Board of Trustees. In such a case the full board is not present, the applicant is given the option to move forward with review by the available members or request to continue the case in progress until all five (5) zoning commission members are present to vote on the application. Per a written request, the applicant has formally requested the application be continued in progress until all five (5) members are present.


At the February 14, 2022 Zoning Commission meeting, the board will be presented with the formal request and vote to continue the public hearing in progress to the next available meeting on Monday, March 14, 2022. As such, there will be no public comments accepted or further board discussion on the case.
