If everything goes as planned, the City of Keota will have a comprehensive zoning ordinance by next summer. City Clerk Niki Osweiler shares that the City is contacting engineering firms right now, getting cost estimates. She says that their looking for the most cost effective way to complete this ordinance.
The current ordinance classifies all property in the City as restricted residential. That means if a business would like to open up right now they would need to get a variance signed by every property owner within 300 feet.
The City hopes to have the ordinance started by the beginning of the year and ready for approval by late spring, early summer.
