Rezoning gets 5-4 OK; city to annex?

Ada —  

Landowner Nathan Dial won another round last week in his fight to have property rezoned on Stonecipher Boulevard despite objections from nearby property owners.

The Ada Metropolitan Area Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5-4 on Thursday to recommend rezoning the property from a suburban district to a general commercial district, with Chairman Ton Lanis abstaining because he has ties to one of the organizations that opposes the application. The zoning board’s recommendation will be presented to the Pontotoc County Commission, which perhaps will make the final decision.

Ada City Council will vote Tuesday on a proposal that would bring the property into the city limits. 

Dial wants to build a commercial auto repair shop on part of his property, which is located on the west end of the paved segment of Stonecipher Boulevard. The property is currently zoned as a suburban district, but Dial is asking the county to rezone it as a general commercial district.
