The City Council approved a request from John Chadwick Farms, LLC to subdivide about 19 acres of developable land between the Moon Motors property on the east and County Highway 39 on the west/northwest. Previous action on adjoining property owned by the landowners have included subdivision and zoning actions to accommodate approval of an automobile dealership nearest to the Moon Motors site, and land use/zoning actions to specify an industrial use on the westerly portion of the land in question.

Under the new subdivision request, property owners are seeking a plat which will create three industrial parcels on the westerly portion of the land, and a smaller fourth parcel that could be an outlot. Upon subdivision, the westerly parcel would be 8.03 acres in size, with two additional parcels at 5.0 acres in size. The potential outlot would be 1.14 acres.

An assessment of $938,639 was set as a separate measure, with payments to be made over a 10-year period.
