City of Greenville officials are expected to sign off next week on the proposed layout of the new, expanded local campus of Paris Junior College (PJC).

The plats for the facility are up for approval again Monday, although Director of Community Development Philip Sanders said there should be no problem in getting the deal done.

“They are ready to go now,” Sanders said.

The Planning and Zoning Commission is scheduled to consider the plats for the facility during Monday’s regular session, starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street. The Commission may also take action to vacate an older plat for a large tract of land which may soon be the location of a significant mixed-used development.

In May, PJC officials broke ground on the $13 million, 39,000 square foot facility, which will be built on 172 acres next to Greenville High School. When completed, the school will serve about 2,500 students.

At present, the school only plans to develop a little less than 111 acres at the site. The Planning and Zoning Commission intended to consider both the preliminary and final plats for the initial project at its June meeting, but school officials pulled the items at the last minute, saying they needed additional time to prepare the documents.

Sanders said the plats are now ready for review by the Commission.

Developers are planning a mixed-use project on more than 149 acres at the northwest corner of U.S. Highways 69 and 380. The site had once been the proposed location for the Hidden Creek Addition Planned Development, where 625 total residential lots had once been planned.

The current plans call for 96.276 acres of single family housing, 30.254 acres of multi-family housing and the remainder, 22.8 acres directly facing the intersection, to be zoned general retail.

Sanders said the Commission is being asked to initiate proceedings to vacate the original plat which had been filed for the previous development on the property.
