Planning Commission schedules hearing
The Jamestown Planning Commission scheduled a hearing for its Oct. 8 meeting to discuss a change in city ordinance to remove the requirement that businesses in the downtown area furnish off-street parking.
Tim Magnusson, planner with SRF Consulting, told the Planning Commission Monday a change in wording to the existing ordinance dealing with parking requirements would exempt businesses in the downtown area from the requirement.
The ordinance change is intended to place less restrictions on businesses that might wish to locate in downtown, said Dave Hillerud, president of the Planning Commission.
In other business, the Planning Commission approved a plat change to allow an addition to the First Community Credit Union building at 1021 3rd Ave. SE, a plat change to change lot lines around a wetland at 900 23rd St. SW and a zoning change to allow an old church building be repurposed into a residence at 124 3rd Ave. SE.
