Woodward, Okla. — Woodward City Commissioners are scheduled to hold a public hearing on a rezoning, and also approve a number of other items during their meeting on Monday.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. in the city commission room at city hall.

The public hearing before the start of the meeting involves rezoning a tract of land in the College Addition between 11th and 12th Streets and Oak and Maple Avenue. The area also borders Locust Avenue. Commissioners are being asked to change the zoning from restricted manufacturing and warehouse district and general industrial district to general residential district.

The zoning will allow for residential or multi-family housing. No protests had been received as of Friday.

Action on the rezoning is scheduled during the meeting itself.

Commissioners are also set to approve a number of upcoming agreements and requests in the consent agenda including:

• agreement with 1000 Hills Ranch Church for a ranch rodeo and concert at Crystal Beach Stadium on Oct. 25-27

• agreement with Pot O Gold Productions for a team roping event at Crystal Beach Stadium on Oct. 12.

• request from Sure Foundation Church of God to close 5th Street from Texas to the alley behind the church from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 31. The church will be serving hot dogs and handing out treats.

Also, commissioners will appoint Burk Rowley to the board of adjustment.

Approval of the final plat of the Southfork Addition, Phase 3 to the city. The subdivision is at 22nd and Hanks Trial.

There is also a vote on a rezoning of tract of land along Downs Avenue from residential to commercial, and there is protest over that one.

The Commission will take up a request from the Arts and Theater Council to match a local government challenge grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council. The city match is $2,000.
