Honorable Tom Brunnock spoke on the 40 + acre parcel behind properties on Split Rock Road. So far there is no zoning change application submitted but the property was sold and deed recorded on 10/29/15, owners listed as LaFlamme, Pisani, & Kurt Jones. The Master plan was changed to convert from residential to commercial at a public hearing in October. This property would need access through city property and emergency only egress through Split Rock Road. He asked everyone to be prepared to attend any upcoming public hearings regarding zone changes and approvals to prevent the additional access through our neighborhood on Split Rock Drive. He will keep the President information of any new developments.
