Former Korean Barbecue Restaurant Site to Become Home to Tom Gill Chevrolet


The former Chung Kiwha Korean Barbecue restaurant building is slated to be demolished and the site is expected to become home to a new Tom Gill Chevrolet sales and reconditioning center.

7800 Commerce Drive was the subject of a first reading of an ordinance at Florence city council that would allow for a concept development plan within the commercial services/planned development/parkway corridor overlay zone.

The site is a little more than one acre in size.

Tom Gill plans to tear down the current building and build his center with the intention of conducting internet sales and staging reconditioned cars.

In other business, city council adopted a resolution authorizing the execution of a memorandum of understanding between the city and Duke Energy to allow for an easement for the utility to access road number 9, which runs behind Airport Ford.

Duke plans to put a transmission station there.

Duke has vowed to improve the road's condition.

Mayor Diane Whalen read a proclamation declaring November 24 a special day to remember Allyson Clements in the city. Clements had a number of health problems, but the diabetes she suffered from is a problem her family wants to raise awareness for. Clements's family wants her memory to make people think about the gravity of this disease, and in addition to November 24 being her day in the city, it will also be a day when the Bengals play the Steelers, and Clements will be remembered at that game.  

She passed away in May at 24.

Mayor Whalen announced that there will be a tree-lighting ceremony on December 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the government center. The Cincinnati Circus will be present, and there will be plenty of activities for the kids.

On December 9 the Florence Community Band will present their Christmas concert at 7:30 p.m. at the government center, and refreshments will be served afterward.
