DeWitt County Board Approves Rezoning Bid for Lot on South Side of Clinton

The DeWitt County Board approved a re-zoning bid on Clinton's south side Thursday night, much to the disapproval of area residents. 


The property is at the northwest corner of US 51 and 500 North Road, just east of the Heather Meadow's subdivision. Residents in the area obtained legal representation. Their attorney, Rich Marvel, Thursday night appealed to the Board the process of the re-zoning from RD3 to RD1 was abused.



Speaking for his clients, Marvel says they simply want more information about what is going on for the owner of the property.



Comments by the Board were limited Thursday night. Terry Ferguson told the representatives for the residents he was told claims about signatures being met. Joe Witte pointed out the language in the ordinance was not very specific regarding the notices and could use some work.



Buck Carter, Kristina Deerwester, Terry Ferguson, Dan Matthews, Megan Myers, Brian Riddle, John Werts, and Joe Witte voted for the approval of the rezoning. 


Tom Farris, Jamie Prestergaard, and Pat Ryan voted against the rezoning.
