The longest discussion was over Bart Thomas' request to rezone a parcel of property south of K18 west of Scenic Drive. The request was to change from AG, agriculture to D1, industrial park. The planning board sent the request to the county commission with the recommendation to disapprove. Their reason was that D1 would allow enterprises that would not be good for that location. The possibility of a PUD was discussed but Mr Thomas was against that for reasons of cost. The Commission decided to postpone any decision.
