Rezoning requests for two apartments get OK, third doesn’t

November 19, 2014

Developers wishing to build apartment complexes went two-for-three at Tuesday’s Big Spring City Council meeting.

The council approved two rezoning requests to allow the construction of apartment complexes, but turned down a third application because of significant opposition from residents in the area.

The failed rezoning bid would have resulted in a 32-unit apartment building on a square block bordered by Father Delaney, Douglas, Aylesford and Seventh streets in north Big Spring. The long-abandoned Kate Morrison elementary school building currently sits at the site.
