Planning Commission discusses Land Use Map

DeRuntz said on Thursday that now that the properties have been discussed by the commissioners, the requests for zoning changes to the properties would be considered at no charge.

Washington County’s need for more commercial and industrial property was also a topic at the meeting on Tuesday.

Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ted Everett told the commissioners to look at providing more industrial zoning on the future land use map.

“I strongly suggest we look at some light industrial usage in southern Washington County,” Everett said. Ebro is a north-south and east-west corridor that is ripe for growth, Everett added. “It will come, it is inevitable. That will be a key area of economic growth in the future for Washington County.”

It was Commissioner Pippin’s final meeting. She resigned from the board after 10 years of service as a planning commissioner. Everett congratulated Pippin on a job well done and thanked her for her service to the community.

“Your wisdom will be missed by the planning commission,” he said.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve on the commission,” Pippin said. “It was not always easy, but it was a pleasure to be able to give back to the community.”
