Clanton council approves re-zoning request for expanded parking lot

Published 10:10am Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Clanton’s City Council on Monday approved a re-zoning request to allow for an expanded parking lot at the Alabama Power Company building off Highway 31 in south Clanton.

Mayor Billy Joe Driver opened a public hearing about re-zoning the land from residential to business. When no one wished to speak about it, the hearing was closed, the council voted to suspend the rules to bring the matter up for immediate consideration, and the measure was passed unanimously by those in attendance (councilman Greg DeJarnett was absent).

Driver said the land in question was 1-2 acres.

The council also unanimously approved to allow Driver to sign an agreement with the Chilton County Commission for the paving of a road at the industrial park.

The road would allow additional access for the Boatright Companies operation located at the park.

The council and mayor discussed a location for a planned storm shelter in the Lomax community, but no vote was taken.
