Ordinances propose annexing Cain addition

The Hartselle City Council approved separate introductory ordinances to annex and zone a second phase addition to Cain Park, off of Lando-Cain Road, at a regular meeting Sept. 22. 

The property comprises 14.83 acres and is owned by Greenbrier Holdings LLC. It lies within a Priority Two annexation area in the city’s comprehensive plan. 

A separate ordinance introduced would zone the property R-5, or patio home. This zone is in keeping with the master layout plan approved previously for Cain Park by the Planning Commission. 

The Planning Commission will make a formal recommendation on both proposed ordinances at its Oct. 13 meeting. 

The Council acted on other matters as follows: 

  • adopted an amended ordinance revising the city’s wrecker service policy
  • introduced an ordinance rezoning a lot on Highway 31 South, from B-1 (local shopping) to R-1 (residential, single family)
  • made two board appointments: Jacob Pfeiffer to the EMS Board and Terry Kay to the Board of Zoning Adjustment.
  • approved year-end budget transfers for all city departments and funds approved a request from the police department to apply for a 2020 ADECA Law Enforcement Equipment Grant for $23,000 to purchase radar equipment for nine patrol vehicles
