Athens site plan review okayed
(2007-09-11)
(WOUB) - Dear developer -- if you're going to do a project in Athens, here are some new rules to follow.

This is the message from City Council members working on a site plan review ordinance.

Debbie Phillips is Chair of City Council's Planning and Development Committee...which put the finishing touches on the site plan review proposals last night.

Supporters contend changes to the current procedures will allow the city to better monitor development.

Opponents maintain they will hurt development and small business.

But those concerns have been addressed, according to Phillips.

The original ordinace will be amended and given first reading at City Council's next meeting on Monday.
