The Fulton city council approved holding a public hearing 7 p.m. Oct. 1 at the municipal building, 141 S. First St. regarding a zone change proposal for a block bounded by Highland Street, South Third Street, East Broadway and Park Street.
The zoning would change from R-2 residential to R-1A. Essentially, the zoning would change from two-family homes to single-family homes, councilors said.
“It is a long-term strategy to try to return the neighborhoods to single-family, owner-occupied homes,” Mayor Ronald L. Woodward said. “It’s a good law.”
