Owner seeks new zoning on property

March 15, 2000

At its April 5 meeting, the Tonganoxie Planning Commis-sion will consider changing the zoning on a downtown lot from industrial to business.

Steve Trieb owns the tract, at 319 S. Main. The city had condemned a building that was at that site, and Trieb hopes to construct another building there, according to city planner Linda Zacher.

Trieb said he has no specific plans.

The property is for sale. He hopes to obtain the zoning change so something can be built on the land.

"You cannot build anything on that property now," he said.

Zacher agreed.

"With the zoning that's there, the setbacks are too large, and he wouldn't be able to put any kind of building there," she said.

Rezoning would take care of that problem with the property, which is just north of Glen's Opry.

Next Tuesday, planning commissioners will consider a zoning amendment that would prevent singlewide manufactured homes on residential lots in residential areas of Tonganoxie.

"We do have more than one doublewide home that has been put on a foundation in town," Zacher said. "They're fairly compatible to the locations they've gone into. But a singlewide would not be compatible in those areas."

Both meetings begin at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers, Third and Delaware streets.
