EDMOND — The Edmond Planning Commission gave site plan approval 5-0 this week for a new addition to the Summit Medical Center.

Plans are for the existing 51,282-square-foot building at 1800 Renaissance Boulevard to expand by 21,940 square feet, said Bob Schiermeyer, city planner. Parking will expand by 111 new spaces for the three-story building in addition to the current 122 parking spaces.

Physicians at Summit Medical Center are specialized in weight loss surgery or a specific pain management procedure.

“The building contains a variety of exterior materials, including brick and metal panels,” Schiermeyer said.

No further action needs to be taken on the site plan, said Barry Moore, Planning Commission chairman.

New Carl’s Jr. location approved

Commissioners also voted 5-0 in favor to approve the final plat and site plan approval for a new Carl’s Jr. to be 250 feet west of Kelly Avenue on the north side of Danforth.

Offices of the Edmond Public Schools are to the west of the site. Detention for drainage to the north of the site is located on the school property, Schiermeyer said. Tinker Federal Credit Union is located to the north, and the Bank of Oklahoma owns vacant property to the east of the proposed Carl’s Jr. location.

Carl’s Jr. will share a driveway that is currently used by Tinker Federal Credit Union and the Edmond Public Schools district.

“There is a mutual access agreement covering that driveway location,” Schiermeyer said. “The drive for Carl’s Jr. will be located on the east side of the property and will ultimately be shared with Bank of Oklahoma.”

The plan meets all of the city’s codes, Schiermeyer said. This item will be heard by the City Council on April 22. | 341-2121
