Planning committee to meet on country club zoning change

CNJ staff

The city’s Planning and Zoning committee meets 3 p.m. Wednesday at city hall, 321 N. Connelly.

Included on the agenda is a proposed zoning change for the Colonial Park Country Club from residential single family to mixed development.

That would allow for the sale of liquor at the facility. When the golf course was privately owned, it was allowed to sell alcohol under a city-granted variance.

Letters were sent to 360 property owners in the vicinity of the golf course to advise them of the proposal.

If the committee approves the zoning change, the matter would move on to the Clovis City Commission for approval. The commission meets again July 21.

City Manager Joe Thomas said the zoning change would be an administrative ordinance that does not change city policy. If approved, it could not be overturned through a referendum election.
