Culver Plan Commission Holds Development Discussion

The next step can be taken for the possible expansion of a Culver pizza restaurant.

During Tuesday night’s Culver Plan Commission meeting, a zoning change was discussed for Papa’s Pizza. The change from C-2 to C-1 would allow the restaurant to expand its location without providing additional parking.

Building Commissioner Russ Mason says there really weren’t too many concerns about the change.

“There were a few questions asked, but nothing that was material,” says Mason. “It’s basically, you know, how are you going to add onto the place? And how’s the parking going to be in the entrance to the place?”

Drawings were presented to the Plan Commission showing the entrance to the restaurant once work is completed. A vote will be taken after a public hearing on the expansion.

The Town of Culver could also soon see some new residential development. The Plan Commission Tuesday night reviewed plans for condominiums to be constructed along State Road 10.

The units would be priced in the 200-thousand dollar range. Commercial space would also be developed to go along with the condos. Mason says the next step is dependant on the developer providing additional information.

“The developer has to give us topographical information and also a drainage plan, and if they can have that ready, we’ll have a public hearing in February,” says Mason.

The developer has conducted similar projects in Warsaw.
