The next part below the jump is about the hearing regarding rezoning the Osborne property on Barnard St.  From the minutes

 3.       Osborn Request for RezoningDorothy Jo Osborn stated that the Historical District has taken in her property at 905 SW Barnard Street and has asked them to restore the old cabins. They paid their $100 publication fee and appeared before the Planning & Zoning Committee, who denied their request until they can come up with more information, including a plan indicating where existing cabins are located and where new structures are proposed. She said that there is no money available for an architect. 

 

Dorothy Jo Osborn Part 1

Ms. Osborn said that the City has refused to extend water and sewer service to the property, which her family has owned since 1930. She claims that the existing buildings would have been kept in better shape had City services been made available.   Mayor Miller asked when it was that the City refused to extend services to her property, and Ms. Osborn replied it was during the mayoral term of Charlie Jean West (1983-87).
 
Ms. Osborn also wondered when and by whose authority the property was zoned R-1, because it has always been a park and the landowners have never requested a change. She was informed that when the Zoning Ordinance was passed in 1992, the property was given a zoning of R-1 because there is one house on it that was (and still is) occupied.
 
Mr. Stricklin said that he understands that the people who are opposed to the change in zoning are not against restoration of the cabins but are against installation of RV spaces. Ms. Osborn indicated that she would be happy to remove any reference to RV spaces from her request because that is a “pipe dream” that would not come about until much, much later.
 

Dorothy Osborn Part 2

Several people spoke out against the RV portion of the request, including Sharon Lawler, Karen Richardson, Eugene Brode, and Jeanie Lane. They were all in favor of restoration of the cabins, but not the possibility of a park or “campground.”
