Zoning change discussion to take longer after quorum not met

Posted: Updated:
Nearly 50 members of the public left Gering council chambers Tuesday night without being allowed to voice their concerns on zoning changes.

The Gering planning commission did not meet quorum, with only four of nine members present. Now those who had planned on voicing their concerns will have to wait weeks to do so.

The public hearing was supposed to be about a zoning change on the 10th street corridor.

City engineer Paul Snarr says that this would change the zoning on the Scottsbluff–Gering highway and east to 7th street to business and highway commercial.

Snarr says that the only businesses that will see a difference are those that qualify, which are heavy industrial and manufacturing.

The new date for the hearing will be July 15th.
