Zoning

1930: Back when none of us were around and the land was all farms and orchards.

 

1970: Block 147 is zoned general business along Rt 130 and the rest is a farm.


1978
: The general business area was expanded and designated L1 (light industrial.) The rest is zoned residential. There were a few houses in the residential-zoned area. The land was farmed where there weren’t houses.

 

9/12/1989 McCollister requested and was granted a zoning change, changing the residential zoned portion of his land to light industrial. 

 

1995: First houses in Steeplechase are built. 

 

More homes in Steeplechase in 1999:

 

2001 – McCollister facility adds another lot for trucks towards Steeplechase.

 

Zoning as it is today (no change from 1989 for Lot 147)
