JONESBORO — A developer seeks to rezone the last parcel of property zoned residential that faces Red Wolf Boulevard.
The Metropolitan Area Planning Commission will consider the request from owner Dustin Tran on Tuesday.
The official address of the 0.23-acre tract is 3003 Kingsbury Drive, next to Checkers. Tran seeks to rezone the property from R-1 single family residential to C-3 general commercial. He wants to replace a rent house with a 1,900-square-foot building for a hair and nail salon business, according to Tran’s application.
A second rezoning proposal would change the status of 11.53 acres at 6609 C.W. Post Road, from R-1 single family residential to I-2 general industrial.
Owner John Stuckey said in his application the land is in the city’s flood zone and no structures could be built on it. He said he hired a geotechnical firm to evaluate the subsurface materials and has been informed that those materials are suitable for the purposes of placement of fill materials for roadways and building structures. Rezoning would allow Stuckey to excavate the materials for use on other sites under the same ownership in the near vicinity.
The commission will meet at 5:30 p.m. in Municipal Center, 300 S. Church St.
