Says denial of 272 housing units unconstitutional
Placeholder Image
Dawson County property owner Bill Evans, and his corporation Dawson Forest Holdings, filed a lawsuit earlier this month against the county, board of commissioners and each of the commissioners for denying two of his rezoning applications last month. If approved, the rezoning of two parcels of land on Hwy. 53 East from residential agricultural to residential multi-family would have allowed Evans to build 177 single family houses and 95 townhomes on nearly 73 acres of land near the Tractor Supply and Fire Station No. 2.
