Paducah Planning Commission

Three parcels of land off Hinkleville Road in Paducah housing an elementary school and two churches could undergo a zoning change that would make their operations easier.

City Planning Director Steve Ervin says the city’s planning department initiated the switch from Residential 1 to Highway Business District for Concord Elementary School, Olivet Baptist Church and Concord United Methodist Church.

The Paducah Planning Commission tabled its discussion earlier this week on a plan to improve the downtown area. The Renaissance Area Master Plan has been in front of the commission for about eight months. Paducah Riverfront Development Authority director Steve Doolittle says the commission tabled the plan to sort out some outstanding issues such as riverfront properties that currently serve as parking lots.
