The Philomath Planning Commission plans to host a public hearing at 6 p.m. Monday on a large-scale project targeted for industrial-zoned property off North 19th Street.
Scott Lepman Co., based in Albany and doing business as Glorietta Bay LLC, wants to build a 175-space recreational vehicle park, a 19,363-square-foot industrial flex space building to attract businesses and a self-storage complex that would feature 150,000 square feet of space and could include an open area for RVs and boats.
The RV park, which would rent at the market rate, would feature a 7,088-square-foot community center area with a two nearby viewing platforms close to Newton Creek. A walking trail system is also part of the plans. Main access would be off 19th.
With the flex business space component of the project, the developer proposes to build two larger buildings that can be converted into different interior spaces to rent out.
The self-storage portion of the project proposes 12 separate buildings, although those would be constructed over time based on demand.
The former mill site property had been owned by David Lin and the spot where the RV park would go near the railroad tracks had been proposed a few years ago as the location for a new county jail.
