Director Harkrader told the Commission that rezoning signs had not been placed
on property in Items 4 and 5 until that afternoon. He explained that the City erects rezoning signs as a courtesy to
property owners; however, Commission members would have to decide whether or
not to consider the two rezoning applications.
Member Black made a motion to table the items in order to give adjoining
property owners time to inquire about the rezoning requests.
Member Johnson stated that he agreed.

new school could be considered because the tract is large and that a road to
the property has not been built yet thus eliminating where a sign could be
placed. He also stated that the

order to give neighbors the opportunity to voice their opinions.
