Bowling Green's Planning Commission Wednesday night recommended annexation of a small parcel of land and interim zoning that will allow construction of a new auto dealership on the north side of the city.
All nine commission members favored the proposal. The vote followed a public hearing and brief discussion of the proposal.
City council will deal with the issue at its Jan. 21 meeting. A public hearing is scheduled that night at 6:45.
Al Smith Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram plans to construct a new building for its dealership after the annexation and zoning are in place on property at the corner of North Main Street and Newton Road.
The property is now in Plain Township.
The commission also:
• Set a public hearing for its Feb. 5 meeting on a request from Wood County Hospital to rezone its West Wooster Street campus from S-3, planned institutional, to I-1, institutional. The change would reduce the amount of time it takes to move forward with a project but would still require all plans to be reviewed to make sure requirements are met before approval by the city.
• Heard a report from member Jeff Betts, who is a member of the group working with an outside consulting firm on a update to the Future Land Use section of the city's Master Plan. Betts said "the effort has been very exciting so far" and the group has 'homework.' The group is planning two meetings later this month to review information and outline details.
