The Maysville City Council approved a rezoning and annexation request dealing with about 45 acres on Highway 52 and West Freeman Drive at a Dec. 11 meeting, but not before some controversy between citizens during a public hearing held prior to the vote.
Gary Adams asked to rezone the front part of his property located on Highway 52 for future development. A portion of that property (6.51 acres) was already annexed into the city, according to the city clerk. Last week’s action brings the total amount of property the applicant has annexed at that address to 56.57 acres, which are all zoned C2.
Adams said there are no plans for development. He said he applied so that the property could, “be available to anybody who would decide to come into the county or into the city for development — to have a place to go for C2.”
