Preston City officials scheduled a public hearing on Feb. 13 before the planning and zoning commission to discuss proposed changes to a city ordinance that prohibits any type of remodeling or additions to single-family dwellings in business zones.
The proposed change to the ordinance would allow expansion of single-family dwellings, but not allow enlargement of multi-family dwellings in any area zoned business. It will not allow any new residential buildings in a business district, said city engineer Derek Kimball on Monday.
“This proposed change would allow residents/owners of these residential structures to improve what they have, but not allow any new houses in these areas,” said Kimball.
New restrooms at the Franklin County Fair complex were discussed by the council after a presentation of the project was given by Wes Harris, chair of the Franklin County Fair Board.
