A special use permit to locate a seasonal roadside stand on the Cinema One Plus parking lot was approved Monday night.
City council members unanimously approved an ordinance granting the permit requested by Don and Linda Mittler, owners of the cinema, following a public hearing. No one spoke in opposition to the request.
Karl Mittler told the council that the plan is to locate a 7-by-14-foot trailer at the current access to the parking lot off of Phoenix Center Drive and sell shaved ice treats. He said no parking will be allowed along that stretch of Phoenix Center Drive which is a designated fire lane. The front of the stand, where customers will be served, will face toward the cinema parking lot.
The stand will be seasonal and will be removed during winter months.
In other action Monday night the council held public hearings and approved rezoning several parcels along East Ninth Street where duplex units have been built.
Those included a request from Lorri Jinkerson and Tricia Hellmann to rezone 1801 and 1803 E. Ninth St. from R-2, two-family residential, to R-1C, single-family attached residential and requests from Mike Broeker, Bo Sida and Bank of Franklin County to rezone 1805/1807, 1809/1811, 1813/1815 E. Ninth St., and Lot 5 of the Resubdivision of St. Peter’s South subdivision, from R-2, two-family residential, to R-1C, single-family attached residential.
The council also approved a request from Lorri Jinkerson and Tricia Hellmann for preliminary plat approval of the Resubdivision of Lot 1 of St. Peter’s South subdivision.
Following a separate public hearing, the council approved an ordinance amending the zoning code for property zoned R-1C, single-family attached residential, to reduce the required lot width from 40 to 30 feet.
That change will not affect the rear or side yard setback requirements in the code, according to City Administrator Jim Briggs.
