The city council on Dec. 3 again heard an annexation and rezoning request for a residential development at the corner of Allen Street and Perimeter Road next to the Stonewall subdivision, which has been proposed with a density the Dawson County Board of Commissioners has objected to. Applicants Michael Turner and Myles Montgomery have petitioned to annex into the city limits 11.407 acres and rezone to R-3, or single family residential with a density of three units per acre, as well as rezone another 2.768 acres already in the city from light industrial to R-3. The applicants also asked for a variance of 3.74 units per acre as opposed to the standard three. The variance was approved by the planning commission Oct. 8, with conditions and contingent upon the city council approving the annexation and rezoning. In a 3-1 vote Oct. 18, the BOC decided to send a letter of objection to the city in regards to the pending annexation and rezoning request for the 11.407 acre tract. The county has asked for a reduction in the density to three units per acre.
