The council approved an ordinance request Tuesday night to rezone the property where the proposed new animal shelter is to be developed.
The land is being changed from Multiple Family Residential-Very High Density to public land use.
A public hearing regarding the zoning was held during the county council meeting.
Community Development Director Rick Bohn was in council chambers to give a presentation on the rezoning of the proposed animal shelter.
Following his presentation, Councilor Robert Gibson questioned Bohn about the rezoning process.
“You started your presentation by saying that the zoning is inappropriate for its intended use,” Gibson said. He asked Bohn if the process was backward, pointing out that maybe the property should have been rezoned before a site plan was proposed.
“It’s done both ways,” Bohn said, “sometimes applicants will propose a site plan at the same time they propose rezoning. Planning and Zoning has not heard the site plan yet. We decided to start rezoning first. This is a great improvement over the example of rezoning the fire station in White Rock after it was built,” he continued.
