Wheeling Planning Commission schedules public hearing for zoning amendment
WHEELING, W.Va. —
The Wheeling Planning Commission resumed debate Monday night over a zoning amendment for the former Grace Lutheran Church on National Road.
A developer wants to build a bank on the property, but neighbors have pushed back against the plan.
The commission voted down a zone change earlier this month.
The developer spoke to the commission about why the bank would be a good idea during Monday’s meeting.
However, some residents still say it wouldn't be good for traffic in the area.
The issue was tabled tonight so that others can voice their opinions at a later meeting.
"They may have had other comments had they known that a new district is being considered. In order to hear out anyone who may have other comments, the plan will be to schedule a public hearing for the March 11th meeting,” said Thomas Connelly, assistant director of economic and community development.
The board will discuss this again at a public hearing on March 11 at 5 p.m. in Wheeling City Council chambers.
