GR Council to Consider First Reading of Rezoning Ordinance for Fuel Kiosk

GREEN RIVER — The Green River City Council will consider an ordinance to amend the official zoning map of the City of Green River to rezone property on Bridger Drive for the purpose of a fuel kiosk.

The Green River City Council will meet Tuesday, March 15, at 7 pm at Green River City Hall. There will also be a public hearing for this agenda item at the start of the meeting.

Smith’s Food and Drug Centers, Inc. is the applicant on the request for the amendment to Green River’s Official Zoning Map. Smith’s is requesting for the parcel located at 1175 Bridger Drive to be rezoned from B-2 (Downtown Business) to B-1 (General Business), with the intent to construct a fuel and concession kiosk on the property. The property is currently owned by the United Pentecostal Church.

Amy Cox, Planning and Zoning Administrator, said during the February 1 Council meeting that the property currently has two different zoning designations and is subject to the requirements of the B-2 zoning district. The larger portion of the parcel, which is the subject of this application, is zoned B-2 and the smaller portion of the parcel is zoned B-1.

While the existing use of the property as a “Center of Religious Worship” is a permitted use in both the B-1 and B-2 zoning districts, gas sales are not. The proposed rezone will combine this split-zoned parcel into one zone district (B-1), and will allow the property to be used for uses such as the fuel and concession kiosk. If the rezoning is approved by the Council, Cox said the church will be taken down.
