Commissioners OK rezonings for hotel, funeral home

August 10, 2018

The Allen County commissioners approved rezoning petitions today for a new hotel on West Jefferson Boulevard and a funeral home at West Shoaff and Lima roads.

Commissioners Linda Bloom and Therese Brown voted for both rezonings. Commissioner Nelson Peters was absent.

The first rezoning changes 5.1 acres of land in the 7700 block of West Jefferson Boulevard from C1 professional office and personal services to C2 limited commercial. Friday’s approval clears the way for construction of a new hotel.

The second petition changes two acres on the southeast corner of West Shoaff and Lima roads from A1 agricultural to a C1 classification for a new funeral home.
