NEBRASKA CITY – Proposed Nebraska City rezoning requests would open the way for senior living units at the Arbor Village Addition and expand zoning for the former Woodman of the World campground near Fourth Corso.
New Tech Properties purchased the campground this year and combined the lot with the surrounding five acres. New Tech is requesting a zone change from residential to commercial.
North Star Housing proposes a zoning change on the north end of Oak Street in the Arbor Village addition from residential to “planned unit development.”
Public hearings on the zoning changes are scheduled at 6 p.m. Jan. 15 at city hall.
If successful, North Star would have the first property zoned PUD in the city. City Clerk Randy Dunster said the PUD zone allows streets to be narrower than other residential areas. It also allows units to be rented and allows owners to use housing subsidies.
North Star plans originally called for 24-foot streets, but the Nebraska City Planning Commission voted to allow 27-foot streets and parking on one side only. Streets in residential zoned are normally 30-feet wide.
