The Borger City Council will be acting on the re-plat of land for a new business seeking to come to the Borger area.The action will be taken during the council’s regular meeting at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, 2011, in the city council chambers of Borger City Hall, 600 North Main.The recommendation, which was approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission at a meeting held last Monday, would be to receive a re-plat of Lots 4-11, Block 24, Unit 4, Thompson Addition, containing 1.303 acres, to be known as 230 N. Cedar Street, and set a public hearing to allow public comment.The request was made by CVS Pharmacy, and the proposed re-plat would basically make the property where Cedar Lanes and Subway sits just one piece of property for construction. If everything goes as planned, the pharmacy should tentatively begin construction this summer.In other business, the council will receive the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission concerning 100 Denton Street and set a public hearing to hear an appeal from Jeff Whittington and allow public comment.Whittington also brought his request before the Planning and Zoning Commission at its recent meeting. The request was to re-zone 1.5 acres of land located in the SE/4 of Section 18, Block “Y”, M&C Survey, from a single family (IF-2) zoning district to a commercial zoning district to be known as 100 Denton.However, after community members voiced concerns about the re-plat, the commission denied the request and decided to send it to the city council for further review.In other business, the council will act on a recommendation from the Building Standards Commission to demolish structures located 409-411 E.
