After failing to give a yes or no vote on a variance to the city’s zoning ordinance on Sept. 21, the Commerce City Council will get a second chance on Monday, Oct. 19.
The Commerce Planning Commission again voted unanimously Monday night to recommend that the city council deny a variance requested by John Adams to use vinyl siding on two houses he proposes in Northwood Subdivision.
That was the second time the planning panel voted unanimously to deny the variance. But when the city council discussed the matter on Sept. 21, a motion by councilman Johnny Eubanks to deny the variance died for lack of a second, and it took a tie-breaking vote by Mayor Clark Hill just to send the issue back to the planners for reconsideration.
However, this time, the planning commission’s recommendation asks that Adams be allowed to use vinyl on the houses’ soffits and facias, areas of construction previously not regulated.
