Proposed Dillon Center residential annex recommended for approval

DILLON – If things proceed as smoothly at the town council review as they did during Wednesday night’s planning commission meeting, the proposed Dillon Center residential addition is on the road to becoming a reality.

On Wednesday, the Dillon planning and zoning commission unanimously recommended approval of the proposed residential annex at the Dillon Center.

The owner of the Dillon Center – David Cyrus and Associates – has proposed building a 40-unit residential addition to the building, plus a parking garage. The residential annex would include 24 two-bedroom and 16 one-bedroom units, for a total of 44,610 square feet. The proposed 32,000 square-foot parking garage would be built adjacent to the current building. The residential units would be built above the commercial center and the garage.

Wednesday’s meeting was the final review of the plans by the planning commission. One of the members was absent, commissioner Terry Novak abstained because of conflict of interest (he is an adjacent business owner), but the remaining five members unanimously recommended the proposal to the council for approval.

According to Theresa Worsham, Dillon development coordinator, Wednesday’s recommendation for approval does not mean anything is set in stone. The planning commission has made their recommendation with some conditions.

The planning commission advised that final construction plans should include details such as timeline estimates, hours, and anticipated road closures, and required detailed landscaping plans before a building permit is issued, among other requests.

The proposal is scheduled for a second public hearing, and review by Dillon Town Council on Wednesday, May 21. The council has the authority to approve or deny the proposal.
