On Sept 12, the planning commission recommended a zone change for the property from Agriculture-1 to Industrial-1. At the hearing, residents nearby the property were concerned about future uses that may stray from the intended use.

This local concern led the commission to recommend the zone change with a rule that allows only a contractor warehouse to be utilized on the property. If the property owners want to add anything to the property outside the confines of warehouse storage, they must return to the planning commission and make a request.
