BG subdivisions expand


Bowling Green Planning Commission on Wednesday approved the final plats for two subdivisions.

The plats involved were for Cogan’s Crossing Subdivision Plat 9, located near the corner of Brim and Bishop roads, and Wood Acres Subdivision, located off Easy Gypsy Lane Road.

Regarding Cogan’s Crossing, according to a memo from Planning Director Heather Sayler to the commission, the owner, Blue Creek LLC, is seeking to subdivide approximately 7.650 acres into 20 parcels. This would be an expansion of the existing Cogan’s Crossing Subdivision, where Plats 1-8 already exist.

Staff approved the construction plans near the end of 2023 and the infrastructure work is mostly complete.

The new plat would fill in the streets of Longford and Wexford in the subdivision, said Sayler on Monday.

For Wood Acres, according to a memo from Sayler,, Feller Finch and Associates was requesting approval of the final plat for the subdivision for the property owner, Wood County Board of Developmental Disabilities, to subdivide approximately 18 acres on East Gypsy Lane Road into seven parcels.

Staff approved the construction plans in February and the infrastructure work began soon thereafter.

During Wednesday’s meeting, Sayler noted that the WCBDD currently wishes to build two respite homes on the plat, which is zoned institutional. The use for the remainder of the land is not yet planned for, but Don Feller of Feller Finch said that typically a development such as this would include similar types of projects on all of the lots.

In other business, the commission:

• Welcomed new member Bob Waddle, who replaces longtime member Nate Spitler, who had reached his term limit on the commission.

• Elected officers for the year. Bob McOmber will return as chair, Waddle was elected as the vice chair, and Judy Ennis was again elected to serve as the commission’s representative to the Zoning Board of Appeals.

• Heard from Sayler that the planning department has granted 178 permits in 2024, up from 146 over the same period last year, including 15 single family housing permits, up from 14 last year.
