Title
An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Zoning), Rezoning of 0.37 Acre from M1 (Light Industrial District and R2A (Two-Family Dwelling District) to C1 (Local Commercial District), Knight’s Market and Spring Street Properties, 418 Miller Avenue, 306-308 and 310 Spring Street (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 7 Yeas and 1 Nay) (Ordinance No. ORD-12-24)
