Rezoning Issue In Starke
By Gavin Johnson, WCJB TV20 News
While Gainesville leaders debate the future of The Hatchet Creek Project. Other cities around North Central Florida are battling over their own rezoning issues. Some people living in Starke are trying to stop an apartment complex. They're concerned that commissioners may rezone a piece of land located close to Southside Elementary school. Some residents fear the possible complex would bring more traffic and more students to the school that's already at capacity. If commissioners approve the rezoning, seventy-two apartments will be built. The mayor of Starke says, "It's a lot of confusion. You just have to look at both sides and way the pros and the cons and go and make a decision from there."
People living close to the school say there are already two low income apartment complexes in the area that aren't full. The meeting starts at 5:30 tomorrow.
