The Milford Planning Commission will tackle rezoning for three projects on Tuesday.

A public hearing on both the Milford Corporate Center industrial park and Red Cedar Farms final major subdivision proposals will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday during the Planning Commission meeting at City Hall.

The city of Milford wants a 182-acre plot at the northwest corner of Milford-Harrington Highway and Canterbury Road rezoned as “final major subdivision” from “industrial, commercial.”

Industrial zoning is for manufacturing, factory and warehouse structures. Commercial zoning is for facilities that provide goods and services. 

A major subdivision is land divided into lots that would require extension of water infrastructure and new streets.

The rezoning would allow for the currently vacant land to be divided into 27 lots that would become part of an industrial business park. 

“The site also includes the construction of a new water tower and sewage pumping station to serve the property and surrounding area,” according to the city’s application.

Red Cedar Farms also wants a rezoning to “final major subdivision.”

The 101 vacant acres on the east side of Bucks Road north of Cedar Neck Road are currently designated “low density residential.”

The purpose of the zoning change would be to build a subdivision of 200 single family detached dwellings.

Also on the agenda is Teal Creek Plaza requesting an extension on approval of its final site plan for about 3 acres between Luca Lane, Mason Way, Riley Road and Wickersham Lane within the Windward Grove townhouse development.

“The applicant proposes to construct a 4,337 square foot community clubhouse, outdoor swimming pool, dog park and playground,” according to the proposal. 

The developer is seeking an extension on final site plan approval because they were awaiting the outcome of a requested variance for off-street parking requirements before the plan could be complete.

The variance was approved by the Board of Adjusters last week.

The final site plan, if an extension is granted, will need approval from the state fire marshal and Sussex Conservation District.
