Commissioners approve rezoning projects

In its meeting Tuesday night, Enid City Commission held public hearings for and approved several ordinances for rezoning projects. 

The first project, approved unanimously after brief discussion, was for a 48.63 acre chunk of land planned as Stonebridge East, a residential and commercial Planned Unit Development (PUD) located northeast of Chestnut and Cleveland. The intent of the PUD is to provide housing options for families, young adults, single parents, seniors, grandparents and others.

"Stonebridge East Planned Unit Development contemplates a mixed use development with office, retail, single-family and townhome units. This Planned Unit Development represents a response to the continuing demands for different types of housing and commercial services in this rapidly expanding community," the design statement said. 

The second property rezoning, also approved unanimously was for the property at the southwest corner of 54th and U.S. 412 to "'I-2' Industrial 'Light' District," the agenda said. This rezoning will allow for an equipment storage yard to be built for Northwest Crane, of Woodward. 

Third on the property rezoning list, approved unanimously, was the property on the "northeast corner of 66th and Garriott to 'I-3' Industrial (Heavy) District," the agenda said. This property will allow for storage of wind power components by Transportation Partners & Logistics, which is expanding its wind power components facility.

The last rezoning project discussed and approved unanimously was proposed for use as the Stuart Nissan car dealership. The property is on the remaining part of the property located west of Neilson Place Sixth Addition, south of Randolph and east of Oakwood to the general commercial district. 

Commissioners also unanimously approved an application for a capital recovery for a water line extension by Warren Power & Machinery Inc., which applied to extend a waterline for 2,400 feet along North U.S. 81 under the capital recovery ordinance. 

Estimated cost for the extension is around $305,000, with $100,000 of that being covered by Enid Regional Development Alliance. 

The extension will service the company's property on 5702 N. U.S. 81, covering 20.4 acres and approximately 132.4 acres of other property along the west side of North U.S. 81. 

Commissioners also:

• Approved a resolution indicating support to accept a grant from Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission to help with funding of a joint-use planning room to be included in the new terminal that will be built at Enid Woodring Regional Airport. The grant is for $159,423. 

• Approved and executed a county jail services agreement annual service payment of $108,000. The city also provides water and trash services to Garfield County Detention Facility and Garfield County Sheriff's Office. The city and Garfield Country Criminal Justice Authority entered into a jail services agreement in 2005, where the county jail will house city prisoners. 

• Made appointments to the Historic Preservation Commission. Kingkini Arend was voted to retain her role on the commission, and both Jimmy Nicholas and Taylor Venus were voted into the other two vacancies for the commission.
