Council approves zoning change for speech therapy office

CLAREMORE — The Claremore City Council approved a rezoning request Monday for 417 W. 9th St., from Residential Multi-Family Low Intensity to Commercial General, to allow Starr Speech Therapy and Rehab to construct an office.

The vacant property had included two zoning districts, so the change will allow the entire lot to be designated as Commercial General.

“The surrounding area contains commercial, office, multi-family residential, and high-intensity single-family residential uses,” said City Planner Jill Ferenc.

“The property is located across the street from the U.S. Post Office and directly abuts commercial and residential property. All properties fronting W. 9th Street between Highway 66/Lynn Riggs Boulevard and N. Cherokee Avenue are commercial or office uses in nature.”

A public hearing was held Jan. 22 at the Planning Commission meeting.

No property owners spoke for or against the request, Ferenc said.

The Planning Commission unanimously recommended council approval.

The council also approved the final plat for Claremore Plaza — Phase III, conditioned upon receiving required one-year maintenance bonds and separate utility easements/deeds for the off-site utilities.

The 13.8-acre site is located directly east of the existing Deer Run Apartments.

“The preliminary plat was approved by the Planning Commission on Oct. 15, 2013, conditioned upon providing a 10-foot landscaping buffer on the north side of the proposed roadway that abuts Harvest Hill Addition,” Ferenc said.

The final plat was recommended Jan. 22 for approval by the Planning Commission.

“The Technical Advisory Committee has reviewed the plats, and all items have been addressed,” Ferenc said.
