Radcliff could get a new venue if the city council approves a proposed zone change.

During its working session on Monday, the city council heard a proposal from city planner Murray Wanner to demarcate land from the Patriot Parkway industrial estate.

According to Wanner, the former county was 14,782 acres near Cowley Crossing between Deckard School Road and Star Lane outside Ky. 361 or Patriot Parkway 2016 annexed by the city and not immediately zoned. Wanner said the planning and development commission had recommended the zone change without public objections.

Phillips Grove Wedding and Event Center is slated to break ground by the end of the month, if the zoning change is approved by the council, real estate developer Brandon Phillips said.

“The idea came up when my wife (Victoria) and I were living in Bowling Green and seeing all these different wedding venues,” he said. “When we moved back here from college, we wanted to do something else besides the construction company.”

Phillips said the couple wanted to give the area a venue that could host small to larger events, Phillips said.

“We wanted something big enough to hold 400 people,” he said. “We thought that was a good number, not too big, but not too small for something the size of a wedding and a reception.”

The venue is intended to be a “one-stop shop” for events, with use of a kitchen, toilets, chairs, tables, linens, and other necessities for the event as part of the rent, Phillips said.

“We want to do whatever we can to make it easy for newlyweds or anyone who wants to have an event,” he said.

The 8,000 square meter facility also includes a suite for newlyweds.

Phillips said future plans include building another building on the property.

The venue is expected to open in June 2022 and construction will be completed in late April or early May 2022, Phillips said.

The property belongs to Brandon’s father, Larry Phillips, who is applying for the zoning change.

The council also considered a US $ 10,655 application for the Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program.

After discussions by council members and Radcliff Police Capt. Willie Wells has already been approved by the Police Department for the fully funded grant, but the city has an application that needs to be approved by the council.

The grant will be used to make unidentified police equipment purchases and a portion, which will be determined later, will be turned over to the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, according to the discussion.

The sheriff’s office is listed as a separate jurisdiction and so the city must agree to share some of the grant money.

Radcliff Police Chief Jeff Cross usually consults with Hardin County Sheriff John Ward and draws up a letter of intent.

The council is expected to deal with the agenda at its next regular meeting on Tuesday at 6.30 p.m. in the town hall.

At the beginning of the session, the Council held a special meeting convened to enter into a closed session on economic development. No action has been taken, according to Mayor JJ Duvall.
