The Columbia Planning and Zoning Commission will meet Thursday to discuss a request to rezone the corner of Broadway and First Street.
The 0.13 acre lot is part of the Howe Business Park but is currently zoned as a multiple family dwelling, or R-3. Dan Brush, an engineer at Brush & Associates, asked that the area be rezoned in the central business district, or C-2.
The property was allocated for apartments in 1935 but has been a restaurant space for years.
“The rezoning is essentially a housekeeping exercise to match the zoning with the traditional property use,” according to a report included in this week’s commission agenda.
H-One, the company that owns the property, intends to put an office building on the lot.
The commission meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday in the City Council chambers at 701 E. Broadway.
