Planning commission nominates new member

Posted: March 11, 2013 - 8:49pm

Chris Steplock is stepping down from the Conway Planning Commission, and the commission voted Monday night on Wendy Shirar to take over the rest of his term.

The city council will have to approve the recommendation.

The planning commission is a group of 10 volunteers that makes recommendations to the city council about land-use issues.

Steplock’s last meeting on the commission will be in April. His replacement will begin with the May meeting.

Steplock is stepping down because his family is moving to Greenbrier. His term has eight months left.

Shirar has been through an interview process twice and Steplock said he felt she would make a good replacement.

“She was our number one candidate for one of the interviewing teams,” he said. “I highly recommend her and I think she’ll do a great job.”

Also in the meeting, the planning commission approved the Churchill Place Replat Phases I and II, the rezoning of 1845 Hairston Street from R-2A to R-2 and the correction to the Conway Gardens front setback variance.

Ronald Kordsmeier is the owner of 1845 Hairston Street, and he said if the rezoning is approved by city council he plans to put a duplex on the lot.

He said it is a mixed-use area within the Old Conway Design Overlay District and the Historic District Commission will have to approve the construction.

“It makes me feel better that the overlay district will take a look at it,” Steplock said.

The commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the rezoning.
