Developer asks West Des Moines council to delay vote on rezoning request
Developer Scott Cutler has asked the West Des Moines City Council to delay a public hearing on his request to rezone property at Fourth Street and Railroad Avenue that would allow a $2.7 million, three-story mixed-used building to be constructed. The Plan and Zoning Commission on Jan. 13 turned down Cutler’s request to rezone parcels at 101 and 107 Fourth St. to Historic Business and to establish a Planned Unit Development after area residents complained about the project. The council had been scheduled to hold a public hearing on the rezoning request at Tuesday’s meeting. Information included in the council packet said Cutler wanted “time to reevaluate the development proposal.” Four of five council members must approve the request to override the commission’s recommendation.
