Following a unanimous approval by the Huntington Planning Commission, Huntington City Council will consider a re-zoning designation in Central City that would lead to a new Dollar General store.

Breanna Shell, planner, told a work session of Council Thursday, May 8, that the property at 1324-1340 Monroe Avenue would be re-zoned from R-4 (neighborhood commercial) to C-1 (commercial). No one opposed the alteration at the planning commission, Ms. Shell said. Property owners "favor" the change and "already have a purchase agreement."

The planning commission discussed, but did not vote, on altering the zoning or the full block of Monroe to commercial, which would be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.

As an economic development mechanism, the new store will likely mean a new tenant for the space currently occupied by Dollar General.

The first reading will be at Monday's council meeting.
