Planning Commission Recommends Zoning Change
NORFOLK - A request for a zoning change on a piece of property on West Norfolk Avenue has received a favorable vote from the City Planning Commission. At this morning’s meeting, commissioners voted unanimously to change the zoning from a mix of C2 – Central Business District – and C3 – Service Commercial District – to all C 3 on the property east of Divots north of Highway 275. City Prevention Manager Trent Howard says most of the area is already zoned C3, and no one is sure why the small parcel of C2 zoning is in place. The line between the two zoning classifications runs through an existing building. The property is owned by the Japana Rose Revocable Trust. Joe Hallar appeared for the family at this morning’s meeting. He plans to operate an automotive business on the site when all licensing is in place. The Planning Commission’s recommendation will be forwarded to the City Council for final action.
