Zoning and land use issues top the agenda for Tuesday’s City Council meeting.
The council will hear public comment and decide on a proposed zoning map amendment and zoning change for about two dozen acres of City-owned land south of City Hall from Transitional to Neighborhood Commercial.
The rezoning includes a half-acre parcel adjacent to the city library, the future site of a Cocina Madrigal restaurant, and a 22.35-acre parcel south of West Bowlin Road, from North White and Parker Road east to North High Lonesome Drive.
In a presentation at Monday’s Planning & Zoning commission meeting, the City outlined plans to market that area for commercial, business and retail uses as part of its village concept. The City also is seeking a zoning change to convert more than 22 acres north of City Hall from Public/Institutional to High Density Residential.
