The council voted 5-2 approving suburban commercial land uses on 1.3 acres of land along Wellborn Road south of Fitch.

Last November, the council voted 4-3 against the less restrictive general commercial zone. The current landowner asked a second time for general commercial and it was unanimously rejected by the planning and zoning commission.
