Pella Council Handles Rezoning Request

The Pella City Council approved a rezoning request for an area near East 3rd and Liberty at their meeting on Tuesday night. The area was previously zoned as institutional, and was changed to single family residential. City Administrator Mike Nardini explains that the land is currently being used as residential, and needed to be rezoned, because if a property on that land were to be 60% destroyed, a residential home could not be rebuilt in an institutional zoned area. Nardini adds that zoning that area as residential fits with the city’s long term plan.
