Final adoption of an ordinance passed over for a second time

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- Two vacant lots on Broadmore in Monroe are awaiting a re-zoning by the Monroe City Council so a local builder can get to work.

The matter has been passed over the past two city council meetings and local business owners along with residents from the area have been in attendance hoping to voice their opinions.

Now they are not happy that the council will not make a decision.

"Since this is in my district I would like to whatever position you have for or against I would urge you to make your voice heard to the people in the council" says Councilwomen Gretchen Ezernack.

 Ezernack tried to ease the concerns of  the residents after the council passed over the final adoption of the rezoning of the property across from the ULM School of Pharmacy for the second time.

"Just as a father, I am frustrated its taking time away from my family but ya its business I just don't have time for and I have to put another date on the calendar and come back again" says Lane Eddleman.

Eddleman like many others have attended the past two meetings in hopes of voicing his opinion on a zoning ordinance that would re zone a piece of property from a business district to a residential district.

Which means an apartment complex could be built right in front of his place of business.

"Some of the folks that live by it, its privacy issues, for me it's the design of the thurofair which I invested in and built an office and a nice complex" says Eddleman.

Now Eddleman and others hope their opinion can be heard the next meeting and that they can sway the council members decision.
