It's about the 16 acres at the base of Tortugas Mountain, which is up for a rezoning hearing tonight. I'm not attending because I believe I already know what the outcome will be. Here are three paragraphs from the article that will confirm my opinion, I think:
"The county is recommending conditional approval, according to the meeting packet. The zoning authority will make the final decision.
The owners, Doña Ana Sand & Gravel, are seeking an EC3 commercial classification with conditions, which would allow hotels, grocery stores, gyms, offices, outpatient clinics, stores and other services on the land, according to the packet.
A few other businesses could be allowed with conditions, including drive-up restaurants, childcare services, banks, pet stores, a pool or gas pumps."
