    The Neighborhood Information Meeting will be from 6-7 PM Tuesday, December 18, 2018 in Exhibit Hall C at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.

    At that time, the applicant will present their plans and City staff will answer questions regarding the required procedures and your opportunities for input during the public process. This is an informal discussion, not a hearing, so no decisions will be made at this time. It is your chance to understand what is being proposed, ask questions and provide input prior to the hearing process.

    This request does not include a recreational vehicle dealership. The current zoning allows residential use, and is platted for 92 single-household lots.

    The Applicant is proposing two Use Areas within the site (see attached letter and graphic).Use Area A would be limited to open space and landscape uses to provide a physical and visual buffer between Use Area B and the existing residential homes to the east of the site. Use Area B is proposed to allow two primary uses: self-storage facilities, and light industrial/commercial flex space offering small condominium units to be used for professional offices, small businesses with indoor warehousing, studios such as photographic, art and culinary, custom manufacturing and similar. Further information regarding the flex space use will be provided at the meeting.
