Not all sold on rezoning request

Brad Smith said his plan to tear down several rundown homes and build a commercial office building is a way to improve a neighborhood that he said is known for drugs and crime.

But some Seymour officials say rezoning the properties at 101-119 E. Laurel St. from residential to commercial is not a good idea.

The City Council passed Smith’s request in a 5-2 vote Monday after some discussion on the best use of the properties. It will come before council for a final vote on March 10.
