Church Hopes to Re-Zone Neighboring Parcel

Church Hopes to Re-Zone Neighboring Parcel.jpg

Holy Faith Catholic Church is meeting with Gainesville city commissioners to change the zoning of an adjacent parcel to their church.  The parcel is located between NW 43rd street and 39th road. It is currently zoned for residential but the church hopes to have the ordinance changed to a zoning that will allow offices, restaurants, and retail. With the new zoning, the church hopes to sell the land to someone who wants to develop it and use the sale money towards renovations for the church. 

Although the new zoning will benefit the church, the neighbors around the church are concerned. New zoning could mean more business, more traffic, and more headaches for the neighbors. The neighbors would like to keep the area as it is. Right now, the neighborhood is quiet and more business would increase car traffic entering and exiting the road.
