Zoning Zooms by

Friday, June 5, 2020 by Jo Clifton

Council members and Jerry Rusthoven, the leader of the Planning and Zoning Department, made quick work of the zoning agenda at Thursday’s City Council meeting. Four cases were postponed, three of them to July 30 and one to next Thursday. Council also approved seven cases on all three readings without discussion. One of those cases, Plaza Volente Residential, included annexation of property on North FM 620 in the Bull Creek Watershed. No one spoke on any of the cases and the vote was 10-0, with Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison off the dais. Harper-Madison did have considerable tech trouble in the morning; however, her problems were nothing like those of Council Member Kathie Tovo, who sounded like Minnie Mouse from time to time. Tovo told her colleagues that her problem with the app was probably caused by a prank from a family member.
