Murray Planning Commission reviews potential apartment complex, Jimmy John’s

The Murray Planning Commission reviewed plans for 60-apartment complex and a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop Tuesday afternoon.

According to the planning department’s staff report, Mike Noonan is proposing to purchase the property located at 201 and 203 North 12th St., as well as the property at 1204 Olive St., to build a Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches.

Noonan is proposing to construct a 3,600 square-foot building that would consist of two 1,800 square-foot tenant spaces. The project is being reviewed as a commercial planned development project because one of the tenant spaces will be a restaurant with a drive thru. The other tenant space would be used for retail or office space. If the project is approved, a minor subdivision consolidating all three lots would need to be submitted to the planning department for review and approval prior to any permits being issued.

The commission also discussed a proposed apartment complex on a 4.435-acre area of land on the south side of Lowes Drive. The property was rezoned in February 2008 from a residential zone to a highway commercial zone.

Stovall is proposing to construct 60 one-bedroom apartment units on the lot.

The Board of Zoning and Adjustments will meet at 4:30 p.m. today and will hold compatibility hearing on both projects in addition to reviewing other issues.
