He then asked for comments from the attendees. A number of residents voiced concerns about any change in zoning including concern over increased traffic, additional lights and noise in a residential/agricultural area, objections to "spot zoning", potential for traffic accidents at the intersection, potential destruction of a neighborhood feel to the area, as well as concerns about flooding in the area since it is a known surface water drainage area pathway.At the conclusion of the remarks, Curt Brown shared the opinion of the Zoning Board who met on 9/13/17 and voted 4 to 0 to reject the request for a change in zoning.
