Heights zoning request on Tuesday City Board agenda

Posted By on Sun, Aug 14, 2016 at 7:29 AM

ON AGENDA: Rezoning of this property for commercial use.
  • ON AGENDA: Rezoning of this property for commercial use.

A rezoning of residential property on the northwest corner of Cantrell and University for restaurant or other commercial use will be topic of a public hearing at Tuesday night's Little Rock City Board of Directors meeting.

The Planning Commission voted 0-9 on the change and the hearing is an appeal of that negative decision. The Heights Neighborhood Association has expressed firm opposition and mounted a letter-writing campaign. I'd suspect the odds are not good for this, but a similarly rejected rezoning a block north for a branch bank was approved by the City Board over the Planning Commission and neighborhood objections, so you just don't know.  The objections include strip zoning and new traffic at an already busy intersection. Owners of the property are Terminal Partners LLC and STI Holdings of LR, LLLC.
