BROOKINGS – The Brookings City Council will consider rezoning two lots near the Brookings Health System from a single-family to a business district during its meeting set for Tuesday.
The two lots are in the Bane & Poole Addition and are located at the northwest corner of Third Street and 22nd Avenue and across the street from Brookings Health System, according to an attachment to the agenda, available on the city’s website.
“One of the lots currently contains a single-family home, and the other lot is vacant. The general area contains a mix of uses, including offices, hospital, medical clinics, churches and residential homes. The property has frontage on Third Street, which is a collector, and 22nd Avenue, which is classified as an arterial street,” according to the attachment.
“In the future, staff expects some of the surrounding residential property to transition to small-scale businesses and clinics that complement and provide services to the neighborhood. The general area has become the medical hub for Brookings residents,” according to the attachment.
The B-2A business district is intended to provide a mix of office uses and often serves as a transitional zone between residential and commercial uses, the attachment said.
In other business, the council plans to:
• Reappoint Mike Lockrem, Caleb Evenson and Brittany Kleinsasser to the Brookings Bicycle Advisory Committee;
• Authorize a change order for the Gateway Landscaping Improvement Project with Kerry’s Landscaping & Irrigation for a total increase of $3,109 to close out the project; and
• Authorize the transfer of a Rosco Sweep Pro Broom from the Brookings Regional Airport to the Britton Municipal Airport.
