The annexation ordinance involving parcels at 17664 State Road 17 and 19456 State Road 10 in Culver is tabled. Thomas Beste recently requested that action in a written notice to the Culver Town Council. Two readings of the ordinance have unanimously passed, but the third reading will be on hold.
This decision comes after the council rejected the first reading of an ordinance that would rezone those 71 acres as a Planned Unit Development for a housing development and gas station. Several residents spoke out in a lengthy public hearing earlier this month against the proposed gas station on the north side of State Road 10.
The Culver Town Council members are anticipated to adopt several ordinances when they meet tonight.
