Boone Council Gets Rezoning and Livestock Ordinances

Posted on 17 September 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone City Council will finally get to addressing requests to rezone property on the west side of the city and also get a look at the draft ordinances establishing conditional use permits and the raising of livestock and fowl in the community.  Earlier this year, a proposal was presented to upgrade the livestock portion of the zoning ordinance.  The proposal was deemed to restrictive and was pulled with the understanding a update would still come before the council.  Meanwhile, more than a dozen property owners on the northwest side of the city want to change their zoning to better reflect the land use that applies to the property.  The area is currently zoned for residential but is used for agricultural purposes.  That requests is expected to continue, no matter what the council does with the livestock ordinance Monday evening.
