There is a lot of public resistance to this request. The request, if approved, would put incompatible  Industrial use right next to the Indian Lakes golf course subdivision and the Western Riding Club. Previously, P&Z rejected the rezone of the two A2 parcels. It approved the two A1 parcels, closer to Gowen Ave.

The opponents put in a lot of time and effort to make the case against industrial use here. Despite that effort and getting a desirable outcome at P&Z, the city council can reject P&Zs finding and approve the development anyway. So those in opposition cannot rest and have to fight the battle again.
