Members of the City of Martin’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a re-zoning ordinance, paving the way for a fraternity house on Oakland Street, during the board’s formal meeting held Monday evening.
This was the second reading of the re-zoning ordinance, which re-zoned a tract of land on Oakland Street from R-2 (medium density residential) to R-3 (high density residential).
Martin Mayor Randy Brundige explained last month, the piece of property once served as the Agape House on Oakland Street years ago. The property is adjacent to apartments.
An R-3 zoning designation allows for more than three people to occupy the residence.
In other news, board members opted to advertise for bids for the city’s brush and garbage pick-up acting on a recommendation from the city’s Public Works Committee.
Board members also approved a request by business owner Van Swaim to dedicate Commons Drive to the City of Martin to be considered a city street. There is a two-year warranty on utilities and pavement for the street.
There will be three aldermen seats slated for election in the city’s municipal election Nov. 6. Those slated for re-election include District 1 alderman Bill Harrison, District 2 alderman Johnny Tuck, and District 3 alderman Randy Edwards.
The next meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen will be an informal session at 5:15 p.m. June 5. The board will meet again in a formal session at 5:15 June 11.
