Both a preliminary and final site plan for a project at the Gestamp manufacturing facility at 5800 Sibley Road (the former Jaytec facility) were approved by the Chelsea Planning Commission at its June 20 meeting.

Gestamp, an international supplier of metal parts and assemblies for auto manufacturers, is planning to add three buildings on its property – one building that’s 24,000 square feet, another that’s 22,000 square feet, and an 18,000—square-foot scrap metal building.

The company, which plans to have 345 employees at its Chelsea location, also plans to update the parking lot and its lighting. Chelsea’s ZBA approved a variance for the project that will allow two of the new buildings to exceed the zoning height limit of 40 feet. One building will be 45 feet and the other will be 74 feet.

The new buildings are expected to be completed by the end of the year, and the facility should be at full production by next July.

In other action, the planning commission approved submitting a draft of the master plan to the Chelsea City Council for recommendations. The master plan would then be placed on the City website, and the public would have 63 days to comment on it.

An amended final site plan for the placement of a freezer at Wendy’s fast food restaurant, located at 1640 Commerce Park Drive, was approved contingent on City Engineer Christine Linfield working with Wendy’s on final placement of the freezer.

Discussion of a combined preliminary and final site plan for Chelsea Family Dentistry at 218 S. Main Street was tabled until next month’s meeting.
