HARRODSBURG — The Mercer Fiscal Court voted to table approving a zoning map amendment for property owned by Tim Kidd at its meeting on Tuesday.
The property, located on U.S. 127 South, currently is zoned as agricultural. On June 8, Kidd approached the Greater Harrodsburg-Mercer County Planning and Zoning Commission about rezoning his five acres of land as business so that he could build an additional warehouse for his business, Kidd Glass, and an office building on the property. The commission approved Kidd's request.
The amendment has to be approved by the fiscal court before it can be changed.
At the meeting, Attorney Merle Clark asked the court not to approve the zone change, saying it didn't fit with the commission's comprehensive plan. Clark asked that 127 not be lined with commercial buildings, which he said could happen if the zone change is approved.
Clark represents several landowners in Boyle and Mercer counties who are opposed to the zone change.
