The Edmond Planning Commission approved a site plan request 4-0 by real estate agent Darren Webb this week to convert a single family home into a real estate office.
The one-story house was built in 1963 and is located on 1.2 acres of property at 2101 N. Santa Fe, one-half mile north of Danforth, said Bob Schiermeyer, city planner. Only 1,000 square feet of the 2,064-square-foot house will be used for an office with the rest used as a home.
No light poles will be added and detention will not be necessary.
“This is a pretty good situation because they’re not making a lot of changes, so there’s nothing that’s going to look a lot different,” Schiermeyer said. “They are going to install a commercial driveway and some turnarounds the Fire Department requested.”
No further action is necessary on the item.
Site plan approved to expand Lighthouse Baptist Church
A 3,700-square-foot building addition to Lighthouse Baptist Church was agreed to 4-0 this week by the Planning Commission. The church has had several special use permits in the 25-year-plus history on the property at 3717 N. Bryant Ave., said Bob Schiermeyer, city planner.
None of the expansion would be close to homes, he said. The existing church is set back 96 feet from the center line and 42 feet from the front property line. The side yard setback to the south is 38 feet, the side yard setback to the north is 67 feet and the setback to the west is 136 feet, he added.
This item will be considered by the City Council on Aug. 27.
