City Looks at Rezoning Property for Luxury Condos

By Melissa Warren | 

The Bowling Green City Commission meeting had the first reading of an ordinance aimed at rezoning a portion of property on Fairview Ave. in Bowling Green from multi-family and light development to planned unit development.

This after a request from the owner of Sheldon's Express Pharmacy, who hopes to turn the unused space next to his business into the city's first luxury condominiums. Initially, there were concerns from some nearby residents regarding added traffic in the area, but one commissioner says it appears all the concerns have been addressed.

"Everybody wants to make sure their issues are heard. It's my understanding that the developers of this particular project have met all the concerns with the neighbors and there are no more lingering issues, or at least I haven't heard them," said Commissioner Rick Williams.

Williams says he doesn't anticipate any more controversy on the issue of rezoning the property, but welcomes any community concerns between now and the second reading and vote at the next commissioner's meeting.
