“Would you want that in your neighborhood?” Betsinger asked.
After a lengthy discussion with one another, and with community members, the council denied the zoning change request with a 4-3 vote. Council members Bev Hermann, Rowland, Charlie Mulholland and Jennifer Graf voted “no” to the change.
“Evidently you did not know the plan and the man that was in charge from 2010 to 2013. And he definitely saw the boldness of all the small businesses popping up along Mill Creek Parkway. It was meant to be business orientated where there is plenty of land for residential in front of or behind,” Councilwoman Maggie Klaes said.
According to City Attorney Jeff Farwell, RK Graphics will have the ability to request a zoning change once again a year from the original request date.
