Madison City Planning Commission Recommends Approval of Wall Triana Rezoning Plan

TRAFFIC ON WALL TRIANA UP FOR REZONING

MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – The Madison City Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of a controversial rezoning plan Thursday night.

The commission voted 6-3 in favor of recommending the rezoning plan.

More than fifty Madison residents showed up to voice their opinion.  At least a dozen of those in attendance spoke out against the plan, which would convert a piece of land on the corner of Wall Triana Highway and Brownsferry Road from residential to commercial zoning.

More than 150 people signed a petition opposing the proposed zoning change.  Many residents expressed concern that the shopping center would end up vacant and attract crime.

The land could become the site of new a high-end shopping center if the rezoning is completed.

The rezoning proposal now goes before the City Council for final approval.
