The Commerce and Jackson County governments are jointly devising a new zoning district aimed at improving the appearance of the entrances into Commerce years into the future.
David Zellner, the city’s planning director, and Gina Mitsdarffer, director of planning for Jackson County, explained to the Commerce Kiwanis Club March 31 how their two departments are working together to create an “overlay district” that would require additional standards for development along 1,000-foot wide swaths along U.S. 441, Homer Road, Hwy. 98 and perhaps Hwy. 334 and Hwy. 15.
“These corridors are the gateways into Jackson County and Commerce, so why don’t we dress it up and make them look good?” Mitsdarffer commented.
The overlay district would be a 1,000-foot strip along all of the major access roads into Commerce.
