Re-Zoning Request Controversy

Posted: Updated:

No decision from Erie City Council today on a proposal to re-zone a large undeveloped east side property.

 The owners of the 35 acre site along the Bayfront Connector near Bird Drive and McClelland say they need a less restrictive zoning to attract a mixed retail and residential development. But neighbors have a lot of concerns, especially about the areas that border on their properties.

 Property Owner Richard Vendetti said, "We finally realized C-3 is not going to work. We just reviewed our zoning."

 Neighbor Sue Winschel said, "We'd like to keep our neighborhood the way it is, safe and quiet. We would like to see them develop it in a sensitive, responsible manner."

 Now the land was re-zoned in 1999. But owners say that was a mistake, and the zoning doesn't fit the site.
