TROY — Troy Planning Commission will consider its first application to utilize the city’s Downtown Riverfront Overlay District on Wednesday.

The meeting will be held at 3:30 p.m. at City Hall and is open to the public.

Wade Westfall, owner of the 301-305 West Water Street building applied for a demolition permit to raze the existing apartment structure to build a new three story residential structure . The application will have its first reading and no action will be taken by the commission. A public hearing will be held during the April 25 meeting as required and then commissioners may take action.
