Culver's restaurant plans for Goshen continue to move forward

GOSHEN — Progress on the potential construction of a new Culver’s restaurant in Goshen took another step forward Monday following a meeting of the Goshen Board of Public Works and Safety.

During Monday’s meeting, members of the Board of Works officially accepted the plat for a project known as the Maple City Chapel Subdivision.

According to Rhonda Yoder, planning and zoning administrator for the city, the request is directly connected to a proposal by Culver’s, with the support of McCon Building Corp. and Maple City Chapel, to construct a three-lot major commercial subdivision (known as Maple City Chapel) at 2015 Lincolnway East, Goshen, that would provide a lot for development of a Culver’s restaurant on the property.

“This is for a three-lot major commercial subdivision. It’s where Maple City Chapel is currently located,” Yoder said. “It’s currently two parcels, and they’re creating three lots. The Plan Commission granted primary approval July 16, and a condition of their approval is that the Board of Works accept the dedication (of the plat). In this case there is no right-of-way to be dedicated, only easements, and all infrastructure is in place, so no bonds are required.”

Yoder noted that the subdivision plat is consistent with the primary subdivision approval, and the proposed lots and subdivision meet the requirements of the Subdivision Ordinance and Zoning Ordinance, with the exception that no overall subdivision drainage plan was required as part of primary approval.

With the plat approved by the board, the petition now moves back to the Plan Commission for consideration of secondary plat approval.
