Arrow Industries gets go-ahead at zoning

By Lenny C. Lepola -

Stan Hildreth, representing Arrow Industries owner Jeff Jordan, was in chambers during last Monday’s meeting of the Village of Sunbury Planning & Zoning Commission seeking a final application approval for Arrow Industries proposal to build an 11,180 square foot facility at 666 Kintner Parkway in Sunbury Industrial Park.

Hildreth said Arrow Industries repackages nuts, bolts, and other hardware for resale. The company has 13 employees – five of them work in sales on the road.

“Our business in Westerville has outgrown its 4,000 square foot facility,” Hildreth said. “Pick-up and delivery is mostly done by FedEx and UPS type trucks. It’s a clean business, not much traffic, no walk-in business.”

Hildreth said the pole barn type building’s front would consist of cultured marble below the windows, stucco above; lighting on east side would be wall packs. The front one-third of the building would be office space with 9-foot-high ceilings; the back two-thirds used for warehousing and shipping would have 15-foot high ceilings.

Sunbury Consulting Engineer Ewes Hall said parking meets code, including two ADA parking spaces. No signage would be required.

The final application was approved, contingent on final engineering approval.

In other business, Sunbury Christian Church asked for six lot lines at its Rainbow Avenue property to be redrawn as four lots to allow the sale of rental homes on the property.

Delaware County Regional Planning Commission Director Scott Sanders was in chambers to present a final copy of the updated Village of Sunbury Comprehensive Master Plan and Thoroughfare Plan.

Commission members will study the document, make final adjustments, and present the plan at a June 27 Public Hearing, preceded by a 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. pre-hearing Open House on Sunbury Town Hall’s second floor.
