What's the "South CBD Rezone" in Beatrice?
During a City Council meeting on December 3, the City of Beatrice adopted a series of ordinances to address zoning issues on South 6th Street.
According to the City, "the proposed rezoning of the south portion of the Central Business district (CBD) would result in that area being zoned more consistently with actual uses." Currently, the area in question is
being used as CBD and will be changed to General Commercial designation.
The most significant change is regarding setbacks - in CBD, there are none. The change under "General Commercial" now requires 15 feet front, 10 feet side, and 10 feet rear setbacks, with 90% of the lot impervious (being covered with building or concrete).
