TROY — Troy City Council will hold a public hearing for a rezoning request for 10.2 acres on Peters Road from county zoning to R-4 single Family Residential District at its regular meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, April 15 at City Hall.

The applicant is Gen D LLC owner Bart Denlinger. The request was approved by Troy Planning C0mmission.

The land is north of The Heritage at Troy Country Club subdivision. Denlinger plans to develop a subdivision of 22 lots on the property.

Council will also review the sale of a home and barns formerly known as the Huelskamp Farm adjacent to farm ground next to Duke Park.

The board of park commissioners approved declaring the homestead and outbuildings of the former Huelskamp Farm as surplus and recommended the sale of the property for city council’s review.

The park board reported the park department had no use for the buildings. In 2015, the city purchased 117.2 acres at 2290 N. Troy-Sidney Road. The city replated the parcel and the house and barns are located on 1.447 acres. The city purchased the farm for $1.5 million. The homesite was appraised at $260,000 in 2015.

The council agenda also includes an executive session for reviewing negotiation or bargaining sessions with public employees concerning their compensation or other terms and conditions of employees. The executive session also will held to confer with an attorney for the public body concerning disputes involving the public body that are the subject of pending or imminent court action, according to the agenda.
