Zoning Amendment Granted

A zoning amendment was approved during Monday’s Uintah County Commission meeting. Triple J Services requested a rezone at 3689 East Highway 40 from an A-1 Agricultural zone to an I-1 Industrial zone. The Uintah County Planning Commission issued a positive recommendation for the rezone. The planning commission held a public hearing and no opposition was given. The applicant also provided the county with signed papers from several of the neighboring property owners in support of the rezone. In 2011, a request to rezone was not granted and cited the nearby residences and stated that a rezone was inconsistent with the future land use map. Marilyn Wallis, a member of the planning commission, did stand during Monday’s meeting and stated that she does not support the rezone because she believes it is a case of spot zoning. The planning commission as a whole recommended the rezone, however, and based on that recommendation the Uintah County Commissioners approved the rezone.
