Requested Action:
It is requested that the Board of County Commissioners conduct a public hearing to consider a change of zoning classification from RR-1 (Rural Residential) to AU (Agricultural Residential).
Summary Explanation and Background:

To the north is an AU-zoned portion of a 10.1-acre parcel that has RR-1 zoning on the remaining portion west of the subject property.
