Centerville City Council has tabled a vote on whether to approve the final development plan for a used car lot on Loop Road, to be built by Voss Auto Nework.
The project — on some of the last undeveloped land on Loop — would use about 1.2 acres of the almost 11-acre site, which is across the road from the Infinity of Dayton dealership and just west of the I-675 overpass. Voss owns the land.
Residents who live below the Loop Road slope in the Village South neighborhood have expressed concerns about runoff, light pollution and other issues.
The city’s planning and engineering staff recommended conditional approval of the plan, but the Centerville Planning Commission rejected it 5-1, citing the need for more information.
Council held an informational meeting with interested parties and toured the site before Monday’s meeting and public hearing. During the session, Voss submitted new information that city manager Greg Horn said would require “more time to review” and another exchange with neighbors.
The vote could come at a special meeting, which clerk of council Debra James said will be on either July 29 or Aug. 4.
Voss wants to use the lot on the ridge above the sloped site to store used cars. Besides a Chevrolet dealership and collision center, it also has a used car lot on the south side of Loop along a row of auto dealerships.
During Monday’s meeting, council also reviewed and approved the record plan for the fourth and final section of the Highlands at Yankee Trace, a housing development that began in 1994.
Charles Simms is the builder for Section Four, which is east of Paragon Road and includes 16 total units, two of them single-family homes on detached lots.
The work will also include final improvements to Shawnee Trail. Horn estimated it will take two years to complete the development.
City council also approved an ordinance establish tax-increment financing for the Cornerstone of Centerville developments at Wilmington Pike and I-675.
An ordinance to regulate door-to-door soliciting and canvassing was given its first reading. Horn said it may come to a vote at council’s next regular meeting, Aug. 19.
