By Melanie Yingst -

TROY — The city of Troy Planning Commission on Wednesday approved the final plat and dedication of the right-of-way of Edgewater Development.

The application, filed by Frank Harlow, was for the final section, section 8, which has a total 6.1558 acres with 20 possible building lots on 5.0951 acres.

President of the Planning Commission Al Kappers noted a third street, “Amberwood Drive,” as part of the final phase. Zoning inspector Duane Puckett agreed, noting he accidentally omitted the drive from the name with the other two roads, which will be called Parklawn and Shady Tree Drive.

Planning Commission member Lawrence Wolke asked Puckett if the names of the streets needed to be approved by first responders such as the police and fire department or the Miami County Communication Center.

“Do we run these street names by them to see if it might create some confusion?” Wolke asked staff.

Inspector Shannon Brandon said the department notifies the fire and police departments of the name and have not indicated disapproval with the names of streets in the past.

Wolke noted several street names ending in “view” and “lawn” within the Edgewater plat.

The zoning requires R-4 single family residential with minimum lot size of 9,000 square feet.

According to zoning inspector Duane Puckett, the lots range from 10,075 square feet to 20,050 square feet.

Puckett said the parkland within Edgewater has already been dedicated. Puckett said city staff recommended the final plat for the subdivision.

Commission unanimously approved to recommend the final plat to city council.

Commission approved Don LeDoux’s application for wall signs at 116 W. Main St. The sign changes the name of the restaurant to The Tavern Downtown.

According to zoning inspector Shannon Brandon, the sign specified on the application would be install on the building’s wall.

Planning Commission member Mayor Michael Beamish asked if the new sign would be on the window or on the wall of the building.

The commission also approved to install window signs at 206 S. Market St., for Reliable Tent Rental. Planning Commission member Patrick Titterington asked if the blue color of the vinyl window sign would be part of the outdoor sign. According to zoning inspector Brandon, said the sign was already approved at the previous meeting.
