Rezoning of a section of a neighborhood to commercial where much of the residents are opposed to the resolution will be discussed during this week's regular city council meeting.
The meeting will take place at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 21 at the Grove Community Center, Room 5.
The property in dispute is a vacant lot located in the residential area behind Graymart, a former garage and service station.
It is currently zoned as two-family residential property. The property is in foreclosure and owned by Oklahoma State Bank of Vinita.
Karen Kyman, a prospective buyer, and the bank are wanting the property rezoned to C-3 Highway Commercial Recreational.
A public hearing on Aug. 14 which took place during a Planning and Zoning meeting, eight residents voiced their opposition to rezoning the land.
Kyman said her intentions were to hold the property as an investment for retirement purpose, and that she has no target of immediate development, according to Planning and Zoning meeting minutes.
The Planning and Zoning committee voted 4-0 to forward the proposal to the city council.
In other business, the council will vote whether to adopt the Americans with Disabilities Act self-evaluation and transition plan and vote to approve a change order for the City Hall Parking Lot Improvement project.
The $19,000 change order is for using concrete for the added parking area, extend substantial completion for 33 days and extend final completion to Sept. 9. The new contract price is $318,819.50
The council will also appointment a representative to serve on the Economic Development Services Agreement Oversight Committee.
