VALLEYCITY, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The Valley City Planning & Zoning Commission approved of a request by Dave Zubrod to have his properties along west main rezoned from a B-1 to a B-2 business zone.
His attorney Joseph Turman said the request was made to match the zoning ordinance of current businesses along Main Street in Valley City. He said right now there is no interest from anyone to purchase the property where the Pizza Corner factory is located.
A nearby homeowner, Barry Devitt said he and other neighbors are not against a future business operating during regular business, but they are against any future business operating 24/7 near their neighborhood.
Zubrod told KOVC radio that he would like to get the property rezoned to match the current city ordinance. He said he wanted to do this so if a prospective business is interested in his property, he could then sell or rent the parcel.
The Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5 to 1 to approve the rezoning request. Bobby Koepplin was the only member to vote against the motion after the public hearing. The measure will now go before the city commission in the near future.
Here is a portion of the Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing on this issue held on April 19th in the Valley City Hall Commission Chambers. Commission chairman Mike Schell opened the hearing and Dale Sather was the first person to give his testimony at the hearing.
Zubrod sold the Pizza Corner brand to Bernatello’s a Minnesota based company back in March of 2016.
