From the High School Free Speech Front:

"If they feel an article isn't appropriate, they will pull it -- or ask the student to make changes to it. They said that isn't censorship. They said they're just approving or not approving what goes in. What's your definition of censorship?"

Richmond P&Z approves Borg rezone from ag to commercial

By Joey Hislop

February 7, 2005 | RICHMOND -- The Planning & Zoning Commission held a public hearing Tuesday night to decide whether or not to rezone a 1-acre piece of land alongside U.S. Highway 91.

Robert Borg, Richmond resident and owner of the land in question, requested that the lot be rezoned from its current A-10 designation to a highway commercial designation. Due to a change in Richmond's zoning rules, the commission will be able to rezone the land. Until last year, land in Richmond couldn't be rezoned if it was smaller than five acres.

"I understand it will be all zoned highway commercial someday, anyway. I thought it might be wise just to go ahead and do it incase a use does come up someday." Borg said. The commission passed the request and it will now be sent to the city council for approval on Feb. 15.

In other business, the commission approved details of a proposed expansion to the Cache Valley CounterTops building. The expansion now awaits sign approval. The commission also discussed possible changes to frontage requirements of certain residential zones. No action was taken. The item has been put on the agenda for April.
