Hearing regarding proposed Cox’s Creek rehab clinic delayed at least a month


Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018 — The public hearing scheduled for Thursday morning regarding the drug rehab clinic proposed for the old Cox’s Creek school building has been postponed for at least a month.

The Nelson County Board of Adjustments will still meet at 10 a.m. Thursday morning in the Fiscal Court meeting room of the Old Courthouse, but the board will vote to table the application from Astra Real Estate LLC for a conditional use permit to use the former school building for a state-certified residential drug rehabilitation clinic.

The request for the delay came from Bardstown attorney Jim Willett of the Saltsman, Willett, Deaton & Hamilton law firm.

According to Willett’s letter dated Wednesday, Aug. 8th, his firm is now representing the applicant, Astra Real Estate LLC, and due to a scheduling issue, he is unable to attend the public hearing Thursday morning to represent his client at the hearing.

Willett’s letter asks the board to reschedule the public hearing for a date after Sept. 17, 2018.

According to Jan Johnston-Crowe, the director of the planning commission, a date for new public hearing has not yet been determined.

Cox’s Creek residents who oppose the proposed rehab will still have an opportunity to voice their concerns before the Nelson County Board of Adjustments after a new date is selected for a public hearing.
