Brownwood City Council members will have a joint public hearing with the Planning and Zoning Commission when they meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday to consider rezoning property at 2909 Coggin. Cullen Sliger has expressed interest in moving his produce and nursery business out of Early to the property, a council agenda briefing sheet states.
Robert Wittig has requested the rezoning of his Coggin Avenue property from R-1 Single Family Residential District to C-1 Local Business District, and council members will consider approving the rezoning on first reading after the public hearing.
The Planning and Zoning Commission will meet jointly with the City Council to expedite the rezoning and accommodate Sliger’s time schedule, the briefing sheet states.
Council members will take up other business Tuesday including:
• Consider approving the city’s $35.34 million budget on second and third/final readings, as well as the property tax rate and utility rates.
• Consider approving on first reading the rezoning of property at 1008-1012 Vine from R-3 Multi-Family Residential to M-1 Industrial. James Villegas requested the rezone after buying the property with the intent of using it as a contractor’s yard for his electrical business.
The Planning and Zoning Commission denied the rezoning request on Sept. 6, citing concern for poor sight distance for trucks with trailers turning across traffic lanes, and a busy road that has had several accidents. A 4/5 vote would be required for the council to overturn the Planning and Zoning Commissioner’s denial.
• Consider approving an Brownwood Municipal Development District incentive of $36,950 for Steve Bowder to develop Duckhorn Town Ranch, a residential subdivision at Southgate and Fourth.
• Consider approving a BMDD incentive of $3,250 for Little Dude Ranch for installation of a sewer line.
