Annexation and zoning that will allow a long-time Bowling Green auto dealer to build a new building breezed through a public hearing and city council Tuesday night.
Council agreed to annex 2.409 acres at the northwest corner of the intersection of North Main Street and Newton Road, and to approve interim zoning of B-2, general commercial, for the property.
Owned by the Knauss family, the vacant land will be purchased by the Al Smith ChryslerDodgeRamJeep dealership, now located about one mile south at North Main and Dill streets.
The annexation and zoning were unanimously recommended to council by the BG Planning Commission on Jan. 8, following a public hearing.
Council held its own public hearing on the zoning issue before Tuesday night's meeting, but there were no comments from the public. Both ordinances had received three readings and had been tabled by council, awaiting the zoning hearing. The vote on both ordinances was 7-0.
Council also:
• Learned the city is continuing to pickup Christmas trees. Director of Public Works Brian Craft said residents could call 419-354-6227 if they have a tree awaiting pickup.
• Heard First Ward rep Daniel Gordon set a meeting of the Community Improvement Committee for Feb. 3 at 6 p.m. to begin working on a draft for a Town-Gown Committee,
• Watched as Second Ward rep John Zanfardino was sworn in for his new term by City Attorney Michael Marsh. Zanfardino was absent last week when five other members took the oath for their new terms.
