Council approved a request by JSM Properties LLC to rezone what was once a mobile home park.  No objections were raised on Monday.  The property will be used for mini storage units.  “Everyone is excited to have [the property] cleaned.  It has been in disrepair for at least the last five years.  Everyone seems to be happy that someone is wanting to do something with that area.  It will have a privacy fence, and because the entrance will be on Miami Street, it will not create more traffic for the neighbors on Sergeant, which is directly east of the location,” Latimer said.  The property is now zoned a C-2, or Highway Business.

The stormwater management plan was adopted without objection following Monday’s public hearing.  “We have to update [the plan] every five years.  The small changes we made were necessary in order to meet Department of Natural Resources mandates.  There are six items that we are required to address, so we made minimal changes to those.”

Council also went into executive session, but Latimer said council did not take any action.
