  • Review and Make Recommendations Section 10.18 (1) D Commercial/ Institutional District Ordinance

Councilman Bounds attended a meeting where he was informed of neighboring municipalities that allow commercial building up to a percentage of the lot. Bounds is not in favor of using a percentage, and suggests size restrictions, possibly 12000 to 15000sf. Discussion ensued. Councilman Haddox suggests Institutional buildings be built according to approval by the Planning and Zoning Committee and Council only. More discussion. Councilman Haddox asks Bruce Danner to draft an amendment to Ordinance 111 to restrict all commercial and industrial building to an as yet undecided size and the council will decide size and further discuss or vote at the November Council meeting. It is decided that each councilman will come up with a size restriction for each commercial and institutional district and compare with the council to decide a final restriction for Mr. Danner to amend Ordinance 111.

Councilman Haddox speaks of upcoming events, including the movie being filmed, The Secret.

Motion to adjourn- Councilman Hitzman, seconded by Councilman Bouey, all present in favor.
