Piedmont Eye Physicians and Surgeons plans a 22,328-square-foot facility at 530 Corporate Circle. A.L. Miller Construction of Lexington will be the contractor.
Arnold Miller appeared before the Planning Board on Tuesday and spoke on behalf of Drs. John O. Reynolds Jr. and James G. Kaufmann.
The Planning Board approved the site plan by a 9-0 vote. The new center will share a driveway with an adjacent medical facility and have parking in the front and rear.
Plans show room for a second phase of development on the tract.
The plan goes to Salisbury City Council for its approval.
The Planning Board also approved the plans for a 13,587-square-foot addition to Autumn Care, at the corner of Bringle Ferry and Newsome roads.
The addition will be to the rear of the existing nursing home facility.
In another planning matter, the board approved a revision to the first phase of Drummond Village, a residential subdivision under development off Stokes Ferry Road.
The revision relates to sidewalks and trees in Phase 1.
Phase 1 was supposed to have a 7-foot planting strip with street trees behind the curb and a 5-foot-wide sidewalk at the back of the right of way.
The revision will allow for a 3-foot grass strip behind the curb, then a 5-foot-wide sidewalk and an additional grass strip at the back of the right of way.One street tree will be planted on each lot within 4 feet of the back of the right of way.
Sidewalks in the development are going in as houses are constructed. The revisions for Phase 1 now match things approved for sidewalks and trees in future phases of the project.
