Quinlan cancels unnecessary election

Public hearing held, workshop set on zoning regs

The Quinlan City Council canceled the May city election and moved forward on changes to zoning regulations.

The council canceled the election and certified all three incumbents who filed for new terms without opposition. They include Mayor Jacky Goleman; Place 2 Councilman Tim McDaniel; and Place 4 Councilman Brandon Frazier.

A public hearing was held on proposed changes to zoning regulations, and a workshop on them was set for Monday at 7 p.m.

City Administrator John Adel said the city’s ordinance currently includes standards for new businesses wishing to locate in an existing building in the “C” Commercial Zoning District.

“The original intent of this ordinance was to improve the overall appearance of the community, particularly sites that were developed prior to current building and development standards. Due to some lack of clarity of the currently language, and the amount of time necessary to take all such requests to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council, staff has been working on an update to Section 14.8,” Adel stated in notes to the council.

The Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the changes at its March 6 meeting.
