City looks at rezoning

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, September 7, 2011

The Andalusia City Council had the first reading of ordinances to rezone three parcels of property last night, including:

• A parcel behind the hospital and adjacent to apartments rezoned from R-3 to MED to allow for medical offices or facilities.

• A parcel on South Three Notch at the bottom of the hill when traveling toward town from the hospital, rezoned to MED. A traffic study will be completed before action is taken on this request.

• A parcel on the bypass across from Brooklyn Road, rezoned from B-3, R-1 to B-3. All of the adjacent property currently is B-3.

Council members will vote on the proposed changes at their Sept. 20th meeting.

The council also:

• Declared property at 101 Doyle St., 204 6th Ave., and 13200 Brooklyn Rd. public nuisances so that abatement proceedings could begin against property owners.
