Rezoning project on west side currently being discussed

Posted: Updated:

A controversial zoning issue on Evansville's west side is about to come front and center.

It'll be discussed during an area plan commission meeting that's just now getting underway.

This involves an area off University Parkway on the far west side by USI.

The issue is on the agenda and the owners of the property want the property rezoned from an agricultural zone to zoning that would allow for commercial development.

The group, 'Growing Responsibility on University Parkway,' has been very vocal over the past few weeks that they have concerns about the project.

They want to make sure the road can handle more traffic expected if that commercial development happens.
