In January 2016, an application was filed for Covington by the Park, a 1,390-lot subdivision and commercial development on Taylorsville Lake Road. The article from the Courier-Journal provides additional information: Huge Housing Project set for Southeast Jefferson.
The preliminary plan intended a conservation subdivision along with commercial development. If these plans are implemented, this will by far be the largest subdivision ever build in this area.
On December 30, 2016 the application was withdrawn.
The original application, (Case #16ZONE1002) by Long Run Creek Properties, LLC (LRCP) was filed with Louisville Metro Planning and Design Services on January 11, 2016. This plan proposed the following zoning changes to the former Logan property:
The remaining land is zoned R4, which allows for 4+ houses per acre; however, that density is dependent on sewers.
Also on December 30, a zoning violation notice was issued related to logging in the Floyds Fork Development Review Overlay (DRO). For additional information see: Developers Violate Floyds Fork Logging Ban – Courier Journal.
LRCP challenged the violation before the Board of Zoning Adjustment on March 6. FANA members and counsel spoke in support of the citation. The Board voted 4 to 1 to uphold the violation and deny the appeal. Unfortunately LRCP has filed a court appeal to overturn the BOZA decision; that process is still underway.
There is reason to believe that a new application for development will be filed in the near future. FANA’s mission is to preserve the rural character and natural resources of the area; therefore, FANA is opposed to the original proposed plan due to the following concerns:
This property includes the following street addresses: 4201/4501 Taylorsville Lake Rd.,15400 Taylorsville Rd., 4200/4201/4111 Yellow Brick Rd.
