Council approves first reading of rezoning ordinance

July 8, 2020

The City Council of Webster City approved a rezoning matter Monday night that will change a section of land near Wall Street from R-1 single family dwellings to R-3 multiple family dwellings.

The council met in-person at the council chambers of City Hall. Members of the public were able to log-on digitally via Zoom, Facebook Live or on the city’s Mediacom channel, 117.2.

A public hearing on the rezoning was held at the top of the meeting. The matter surrounds a 25-acre parcel of land owned by the Marilyn Williams family. A developer hopes to create a variety of dwellings on the property. One written objection was filed by John D. Larson of Webster City who said in a letter that with 10 apartment buildings in the area, it seemed unfair to add another in “such a small area.”

Gina Monroe was in attendance and told the council she owned the farm adjacent to the property in question.

“I don’t know anything about it, I don’t know the kind of apartments that are going in there, so I would like to learn more before I object to anything,” Monroe said.
