First Reading of Ordinance to Rezone
Charlie Kamuf, City Attorney, gave the first reading of an ordinance to re-zone from an R2 to an R3 in order for a new set of duplexes to be built on Community Center Drive in front of Lewisport City Hall. R2 zoning doesn’t allow for multi-family units. “We have to go through two readings of that ordinance,” Mayor Chad Gregory said. “Landowners are wanting to go from an R2 to an R3. After the second reading of the ordinance next month, developers can begin construction.”
