Simpsonville Kentucky is now equal in size to Louisville!Posted by Jonathan Karlen on Friday, September 2nd, 2011 at 3:12pm.
Gotcha. No, its not actually – but Simpsonville KY real estate did recently increase in size by 130 acres. At the Wednesday March 19, 2008 city commission meeting, it was approved unanimously by a score of 5 to 0 to annex some land to within its city limits that is currently owned by John Schnatter of Papa John’s Pizza fame. The annexation was requested by the real estate owner to prevent it from potentially being annexed into a proposed new city called Veechdale that is gaining some momentum within this community.
And now the city has plans to potentially acquire an additional 10 acres that is located on the southern portion of the I-64 interchange that is currently owned by James Walters, Elizabeth Settle, and Kitty Caudill as trustee of the Kitty Caudill revocable trust.
All of this was primarily stirred up when several persons within the community felt that the government officials that regulate zoning and land uses weren’t listening to their constituents concerns. The government officials adamantly maintain that they have and are listening to their concerns, and that all remarks have been addressed within their decision making process. At this most recent meeting, things were fairly level headed with some good questions regarding aesthetic concerns and potential architectural requirements of any new developments that may be considered on these tracts of real estate.
Regardless, this gives Simpsonville Kentucky a little more oomph so to speak as far as their city proximity and use around their community.
For those that are interested in finding out more information or even attending, the additional 10 acres proposed annexation is scheduled to receive approval or disapproval at the next meeting on April 1st, 2008 at 7:00 pm EST.
