Zoning issue heads back to Gonzales council


GONZALES, La. (AP) — A property owner plans to ask the Gonzales City Council to reconsider a rezoning request for a site that's become a symbol for a growing divide in the council over how to deal with zoning changes.

At issue is a 22-acre tract on La. Highway 44, part of which local developer Jimmy Boyce III sought to be rezoned as the future site for a Gonzales location of a national electrical supply company, Crawford Electric.

The request received strong support from local civic and business leaders who seem increasingly frustrated by some council members' resistance to changes from C-1 retail zoning.

At Monday night's meeting, Mayor Barney Arceneaux tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1mcoEdu ) a representative of the property owner will ask the council to reconsider the matter.
