City Council voted unanimously at a special meeting Thursday to extend special zoning options to property owners on East Second Street.
Amendments to Planning and Zoning Ordinance 10-02 also included the removal of language pertaining to marijuana distributors so as to prevent the city from being responsible for regulation of marijuana related businesses.
The omission does not bar distributors or change the permit process for them.
Councilor Steve Henderson said the amendments relating to Second Street could be described as a “cleaning up” of the ordinance. He said the goal is to promote economic development.
“The idea is to mirror what we did on West Second Street,” he said.
West Second Street falls under the C-4 Commercial Business District, known before the amendments passed as the C-4 Westside District.
