Edmond Planning Commissioners recommended Tuesday that a 5-acre track of land in the northern part of the city be divided into two lots.
The property is located east of Coltrane Road and about a half mile north of Sorghum Mill Road.
Owner Roy Cowan wants the property divided so a second home can be built there, said City Planner Bob Schiermeyer.
The exsisting home at 5724 N Coltrane Road will be on a 92,960-square-foot piece of property. The lot located to the east of the existing house will be 109,560-square-feet.
Schiermeyer said all the city planning and zoning requirement have been met.
Planning commission also recommended approval for a variance from the city code at Slim Chickens, a new restaurant coming to Edmond at 555 S Kelly Ave. The variance will allow the owner, Tom Gordon, to put a sign on a canopy outside the restaurant that will be renovated.
A complete story about the planning commissioners’ decision on the request of Slim Chickens will be Thursday’s edition of the Edmond/State section of The Oklahoman.
