Commerce – The Commerce City Council passed the second reading of a zoning ordinance officially designating a corridor district in regular session this week. The new classification was made as part of the Strategic Economic Plan for Commerce and seeks to connect A&M-Commerce with downtown under new zoning policies. The corridor will run along Live Oak St. from Highway 50 to Washington St., and along Monroe St. past A&M-Commerce to Live Oak.
The area had been zoned general business and most uses will still be permitted along the corridor. The new zoning classification seeks to put certain restrictions on the architecture of any new businesses so the look and feel of the entire area can be carefully cultivated for the long-term.
