Rezoning Issues Addressed By Planning Commission

August 10, 2004--Posted at 11:00 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO--"If I buy a piece of property that's R3, I don't know what's going to be there.

If I buy a piece of property that's zoned R6, I know what the potential's going to be,"said Ron Shipley.

Shipley works for the Building Inspection Department in Jonesboro.

Tuesday night's proposal would stop the use of R3, and more clearly define each housing complex. Beginning with R3  designed for mobile home use, and proceed with R4, 5, and 6.

"R4's would be multi family, up to four duplexes, basically eight dwelling units. The R 5 would be multiplexes with up to twenty units,"said Shipley.

Complexes with more than twenty units would be classified as R 6.

Current R3 zones would remain R3, and still have all of the privileges.

Tuesday night, the commission tabled this issue.  The commission also will not recommend the rezoning of a residential R1 neighborhood to commercial C5 on Paula Drive.

The people who wanted that area rezoned have the right to appeal that decision to the city council, and have that matter heard before the city council.

Appeals can be made within thirty days. Now the city council will hear a rezoning recommendation by the commission to rezone a C4 neighborhood commercial district to a general commercial district on the south side of Highland drive.

The recommendation passed as long as stipulations were met.
