County rezoning OK'd 2-1

Action may clear way for auto/bus repair business

Ada —  

Pct. 1 Pontotoc County Commissioner Gary Starns gave it one last try Monday morning in his attempt to stop his two fellow commissioners from rezoning 2.45 acres of property in the Stonecipher Boulevard area from suburban to commercial.

In the end, all went as expected as Ada resident Nathan Dial got the rezoning he’s been seeking for almost two years.

“I think after several thousand dollars spent, David slew the Goliaths,” Dial said as he accepted a room full of congratulations from well-wishers who showed up to offer support.

The victory could turn out to be short-lived, since the city of Ada has corrected its legal notice which prevented the council from annexing the land — Dial’s property included — into the city limits of Ada.

That corrected legal notice has now been posted and the council is set to meet Feb. 19. If it annexes the property as expected, it would be free to return the zoning to A-2 suburban.

If those events were to occur, Dial’s new C-2 zoning might go right back to A-2, assuming the city would zone that way, once again preventing him from opening an auto/bus repair for-profit shop on his property.
