City Commission approves zoning change for convenience store

Ponca City Now - July 14, 2015 8:50 am

Ponca City’s Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Monday night to approve rezoning of the southwest corner of Highland Avenue and Waverly Street to C-2 Commercial to allow a convenience store to be built.

In a lengthy meeting more than a dozen residents spoke – mostly from the nearby Selvey Addition, and mostly against locating a convenience store at the intersection.

Approval of the zoning change is not the final step in the process. Now the developer and city staff will work together to create a final site plan taking into account laws and regulations on a long list of items from traffic flow to water detention to landscaping.
