No one spoke during a public hearing at the recent Arab City Council meeting to rezone a lot, portions of two lots, and another section of land, all in the Fourth Avenue Northwest area, from R-3 (residential) to UM SD (Urban Mix).
Mayor Bob Joslin said the property, which has already been acquired, is part of the area where a new assisted living facility will be built that will also border Main Street.
“The Planning Commission recommended that we approve this,” Joslin said. “They just needed the complex to be all a part of one zone.”
The council unanimously approved the ordinance.
The council also approved resolutions to authorize the mayor to execute an ALDOT (Alabama Department of Transportation) agreement for an application to purchase two senior citizens buses.
