The Marion County Planning and Zoning Commission will be meeting this Thursday to discuss one issue, with which at least one neighbor has an issue.
Teya Stice, county improvement coordinator, reported on the request, which includes rezoning a parcel of land to business so the owners can build a paintball facility.
Western District Commissioner Steve Begley reported he had received a phone call from one neighbor, who was concerned about the additional traffic on Highway 6.
In addition, he said, she was concerned about the number of injuries caused by paintball guns in the nation.
Planning and zoning will be holding the first hearing on the issue this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Palmyra Courthouse.
In her report, Stice also noted Catie Dancer and Monty Doyle will be appearing at next Monday’s commission meeting to discuss a planned expansion at their facility.
She also said she will be meeting with Allen’s Carpet to discuss carpeting in the court room at the Palmyra Courthouse.
In his report, Mike Schaefer, county highway supervisor, expressed some concern over the new law which is requiring those wishing to receive CDL licenses to now have to take classes prior to getting that license.
He also noted the county would be responsible for paying for those classes as well.
The commissioners noted they would be asking about the new law at their next training session.
