City Proposes Rezoning of 2 Recently Annexed Business Parks
Sulphur Springs City Council Tuesday during their regular session discussed a number of proposed ordinances, including two to rezone two business parks.
Ordinances 2747 and 2748 call for rezoning of Pioneer Business Park and Heritage Business Park to heavy industrial zones. Basically, Community Development Director Tory Niewiadomski told the council, this is a standard action following annexation of business parks, which “come in” as agricultural zones.
There areas were intended as industrial zones when annexed, to allow for growth and development within them, according to the community development director.
Pioneer Business Park is 103.05 acres and spans from the west side of CMH Road between Business 67 and the Interstate 30 frontage road. Heritage Business Park is 117.33 acres and includes adjacent properties located east of Loop 301 on Heritage Parkway, north of the railroad tracks, west of County Road 3501 and south of County Road 3502.
The council gave approval on first reading to both rezoning ordinances.
