Plat for credit union expansion approved


The Jamestown Planning Commission gave preliminary approval to the First Community Addition Monday.

The new plat combines existing lots to allow for an expansion of the First Community Credit Union building at 1021 3rd Ave. SE and additional parking spaces.

If the plat receives final approval at the Sept. 10 Planning Commission meeting, it will move to the Jamestown City Council for consideration.

The Planning Commission also scheduled a public hearing for a revision to the Jamestown zoning ordinance to remove requirements for off-street parking in the downtown area.

Currently ordinances require new businesses have available off-street parking which could be difficult or impossible to meet in some downtown locations.
