Franklin Fiscal Court will vote June 6 whether to approve a zone change that will allow a new subdivision near Game Farm Road.
In a brief special meeting Wednesday afternoon, Fiscal Court gave the first reading of two ordinances - one approving and one denying the zone change.
Granting the zone change would go against the Frankfort-Franklin County Planning Commission's recommendation to deny the rezoning. The commission voted 6-2 in March to deny a zone change request from David and Julia Gabbart Morris for 54.3 acres at 1904 Louisville Road.
The Morrises were seeking a zone change from RR-Rural Residential to RB-Single Family Residential "B" density.
A subdivision intended for the site has been a point of concern for neighbors who live along Game Farm Road. The group opposed any large-scale subdivision in the area and told the planning commission it would detract from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources' Game Farm and the rural atmosphere.
