Sheldon P & Z Approves Zoning Changes

Date posted - February 8, 2012

Two public hearings held by the Sheldon Planning and Zoning Commission have resulted in the approval of two proposed zoning changes.

One of those concerned the re-zoning of the former Data Dimensions property on Western Avenue from Light Industrial to Residential Multiple.

Crossroads Community Church is in the process of buying the property to be used as their church building. The re-zoning would help make this possible.

The Pastor of the church expressed his appreciation to the commission for approving the zoning change.

The other hearing concerned the property along Highway 18 immediately West of the new Hy-Vee property. This area also has been zoned as light industrial, but the commission voted to recommend a change to arterial commercial. Development Director Mark Gaul told the commission that they plan to market this area to businesses who wish to use it for commercial use.

The re-zoning decisions will now be sent to the City Council for their consideration.

In other business the Commission gave approval to the preliminary and final plats of the Rungers Fourth Addition. This consists of 13 lots in the area East of the current O’Brien County Implement property. It also includes the location of Runger Street which will curve to the northeast of the O’Brien County Implement property and then turn back to the east on the north side of the S Squared Building where it will connect with Runger Avenue.
