P&Z panel approves pair of applications

Planning & Zoning (P&Z) commissioners approved the requests of both applicants on Wednesday.
P&Z commissioners unanimously recommended approval of a four-lot preliminary plat for the New Meadows III Subdivision. Clem Yancey made this request. The plat is in a residential zone approximately 135 N. 365 W.
The P&Z commissioners also unanimously approved a six-foot variance to setback requirements for a communication tower at 138 N. 740 W.
Because of a "huge mistake," the communication tower was placed six feet off center. In the original design received by Planning & Zoning, the tower was to be centered.
The contractor had an old plan. The mistake was discovered after the tower was erected.
"I'm here to plead for your mercy," said the design engineer.
