Woodward News

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward City Commissioners will hold a public hearing, then discuss a possible rezoning proposal on Tuesday.

The commission meets at 7 p.m. in city hall. The meeting is held on Tuesday this week due to the Martin Luther King Holiday on Monday.

The rezoning request by Brian and Holly Johnston is for a piece of property just west of First and Downs. They want zoning changed from R-1 (single family dwelling) to C-2 (general commercial district) in order to put in a climate controlled storage facility. The property is not being used currently.

The City has received a number of protests about the request from residents close by concerned about property values, noise and traffic.

After the hearing, an action item for discussion is on the meeting agenda.

Commissioners will also discuss posting a notice of a public hearing on possibly annexing a tract of land called the WoodOak subdivision. The area would be zoned R-1 (single family dwelling) and includes just over 7.5 acres.

Commissioners will also take up the annual agreement for a school resource officer with the Woodward School District. The school distract pays 50 percent of the officer’s salary and benefits.

Woodward  County Commissioners will meet at 10 a.m. on Tuesday in the courthouse.

The agenda is short with only a couple of routine items facing commissioners.
