Planning commission tables Stuff zoning vote

Before a standing-room only crowd, the Winchester-Clark County Planning Commission voted to table a rezoning request from the owners of Stuff Recycling.

The company requested rezoning about a third of a 12.5 acre tract on Clintonville Road adjacent to its property on Lexington Road.

William Dykeman, acting commission attorney, made the recommendation early in Tuesday’s meeting, citing his own legal opinion and that of Clark County Attorney Brian Thomas, as stated in a letter from last week.

In his letter, Thomas said he believes Stuff’s current activities violate a 2012 finding by the Winchester-Clark County Board of Adjustments, which grandfathered the Stuff property’s business B-3 zoning and limited its activities to the original 10 acre site.

The interpretation of that finding is scheduled for Thursday’s Board of Adjustments meeting.

Dykeman recommended postponing any action on the zoning request until the Board of Adjustments makes its findings.

The floor was never opened for public comment concerning the Stuff request.

The planning commission’s next regular meeting is scheduled for Oct. 2.
