A 4-4 vote on the Galloway development recommendations at the August meeting of the Planning & Zoning Commission has resulted in the item being tabled until its Sept. 12 meeting, where the commission will vote again. The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. in Historic City Hall Council Chambers. The commission’s public hearing on the issue is now closed.
City Planning and Development staff presented its recommendations for future development in Galloway to the commission Aug. 15. After two hours of discussion and public comments, the commission voted unanimously to recommend removing the properties located on the southern corners of Lone Pine and Battlefield from the recommendations.
