The City Council passed Resolution F-121 on January 24, 2023 for the purpose of scheduling a hearing on February 14, 2023 on the matter of a petition filed by Emmanuel Lutheran Church and Charley Hough who owns more than two-thirds of the property abutting the requested vacation. The Applicants are seeking the vacation of the alleyway for the purpose of developing a new medical facility. The vacation would allow the two properties to adjoin. The City may require the owners of the property abutting the street to compensate the city in an amount that does not exceed the full appraised value of the area vacated.

On October 11, 2022, City Council approved Ordinance Y-21, to allow for “medical centers” as a conditional use in the R-3 or R-3H Zones. At the time staff inadvertently forgot to include “medical clinics” as a conditional use as part of that ordinance. This ordinance corrects that Scrivener's error.
