WINSLOW — Following months of debate and discussion about rezoning properties off Lee and Marie streets in Winslow, the council is closer to finding a alternative.

At a particular Winslow City Council assembly Thursday night time, councilors voted down a proposed ordinance to alter the a lot from higher density residential to mixed-use zone. A new proposal for a contract zone was delayed and will be up for a vote at the often scheduled council assembly at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9.

“The big difference is, a agreement zone permits us to restrict the use of the region to a distinct goal, in this case, warehousing,” Town Supervisor Erica LaCroix reported in an job interview.

There will be a general public hearing on the deal zone at the Nov. 9 meeting, LaCroix reported.

Presently the issue of public remark and significantly discussion at the September and Oct conferences as properly as a workshop, the council went into Thursday night’s meeting with the sole target of operating out the circumstance.

The city council originally authorised the ordinance to adjust the land from substantial-household to blended-use twice, but after a workshop with neighbors, the question was introduced back again right before the council at the Oct. 13 assembly. The council then determined to desk the ordinance, which would have rezoned a lot on Lee and Marie streets.

Steve Martin, owner of S B Martin Excavations, wanted to make a garage to maintain products for his business enterprise on the land owned by Chuck Lambert.

A mixed-use zone enables a range of businesses by everyone. A contract zone is particular to the home operator and the use proposed for that zone. The particular use proposed in the upcoming ordinance narrows the use prospects down.

At Thursday’s assembly, the council voted 5-2 to reduce the prior ordinance, with at-big councilor Jeffrey West and District 1 councilor Patricia Ayer voting towards the elimination.

The new ordinance regarding the deal zone was tabled to the Nov. 9 meeting for the reason that there was not sufficient time to finish expected notices ahead of the special conference.
