Property owner Gail Dixon requested that the 6.9-acre tract be rezoned from A-R (agricultural residential) to C-1 (commercial).

The council voted to rezone the property on a 4-0 vote. Mayor Eric Dial was out of town.

The subject property is located across Dogwood Trail from a retail and office center.

Planning Director Phillip Trocquet in recommending the request said area properties are currently zoned commercial, office-institutional, educational-institutional and residential.

Trocquet said the property is located in the Community Gateway Character Area and is appropriate for commercial zoning.
