Motion by Printz, seconded by DeMuynck to deny Petition #323 from Jeremy and William Johnson, requesting rezoning of property located at 47075 Jefferson, from RM-3 (Multiple Family Residential) to C-1 (Local Commercial). The following reasons were read into the record by Trustee Printz:

The property in question can be reasonably developed as currently zoned.

The proposed rezoning is inconsistent with the Master Plan Map.

The current zoning designation is consistent and compatible with the surrounding zoning designations.

There is no identifiable public economical need for this rezoning. The Master Plan recognizes that a surplus of commercial zoning and development exists in the Community.
