Weirton planners approve Altair Development request

WEIRTON – The Weirton Planning Commission, on Wednesday, approved a request from a development company which is continuing work on a project along Colliers Way.

Altair Development, which has been developing the area known as the Villages at Colliers Way, requested a preliminary subdivision plat approval for Phase II of development on properties located in the PUD district at the end of the existing American Way.

Chief Code Official Rod Rosnick explained the request.

“Altair Development was before the Planning Commission a couple months ago about the PUD plan amendment to change the Phase II back to eight commercial lots. So this is a follow-up plat to show the eight plots developed and the new public roadway they are proposing,” Rosnick said. “All departments have no issues.The approval of this plat will give them permission to complete their developments, get utilities approved, install the infrastructure and then come back to this commission for final approval. This does not need to go through council.”

Planners voted unanimously to approve the request.
