In a regular meeting of the Denison City Council on Monday, the Council held two public hearings to discuss zoning change requests that the Council had received.


The first request was for a zoning change from a Local Retail District to Light Industrial District at 130 W. Day St. Business owner, Curtis Ross planned to use the property as a used car lot for his existing auto repair business, which is adjacent to the property. Ross plans to expand the existing building on the property by 1,728 square feet to allow for additional space for major and minor auto repair.


The Council voiced minor concerns over the project, due to a history of neglect on the newer property, but ultimately approved the zoning change unanimously.


The second request brought to the Council was for a zoning change from a Light Industrial District to a Local Retail District. Fernando Salas, of Dallas, requested the change due to half the lots on the property being zoned retail, and the other half being industrial. Salas plans on opening a laundromat on the property, and requested the zoning change on the additional lots to allow for adequate parking.


The Council unanimously approved the zoning change request.
