Council considers Whiteline St. zoning change
Published 8:01 am Thursday, February 16, 2023
On Tuesday, the LaGrange City Council discussed a Board of Planning and Zoning Appeals recommendation on a request to rezone three parcels on Whiteline St. and Kissler St. from Traditional Neighborhood Residential (TN-R) and Corridor Mixed Use (CR-MX) to Traditional Neighborhood Mixed Use (TN-MX).
The applicant has proposed a mixed-use development on the three-acre property, which would consist of a cottage court-style development, along with commercial out parcels, said City Planner Mark Kostial.
Kostial said the development would be consistent with the city’s comprehensive plan, which allows for single-family residential, mixed-use and neighborhood commercial.
Planning and Zoning Appeals unanimously recommended the zoning change, Kostial said.
The property in question is located between Whiteline St. and Kissler St. near Jabaley’s Paint & Appliance store.
A motion to call for a public hearing on March 14 for the zoning change was unanimously approved. The change could be approved as soon as the March 28 council meeting.
