Zoning change requested to accomodate apartments

A zoning change for land located off Hwy. 37 north of the Dairy Bar has been requested by the current owner in preparation for sale of the property for the development of a 64 unit luxury apartment complex.

The 5.5145 acre tract of land was the former homestead of Wilma Wolverton. See the April 19 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more about this project.
