Plans are moving forward on the construction of a new dealership building at Waxahachie Central Kubota. Waxahachie City Council members unanimously approved a specific use permit for the project as well as a developer agreement during their Tuesday, July 6, meeting. The approval includes a stipulation that masonry be incorporated.
Planning director Shon Brooks presented the item to the council for its consideration.
“They are removing the existing building on site and replacing it with a new structure,” he said. “The applicant is proposing to remove the (two) buildings on the northern portion of the site and construct a 12,000 square foot dealership. The existing office building on the south portion will be retained and used for storage.
“The pipe railing fencing that surrounds the site is proposed to remain on site,” he said. “The applicant is proposing to replace the asphalt with concrete for the parking area as well as the drive across the property.”
According to Central Kubota’s Facebook page, the business opened in 2012. It offers a variety of equipment, including tractors, mowers, utility vehicles, construction equipment, and hay/farm implements.
Brooks said the site’s landscaping has been increased to include trees and shrubs along the entirety of its Interstate Highway 35E frontage.
During construction, dealership employees will relocate temporarily to the Corsicana location. Once construction is finished, they will return.
