  • The El Dorado City Commission will be revisiting the issue of changes in zoning to allow for transitional housing.
    The Commission had asked for a Transitional Housing Task Force be formed in July of last year to address the issue of establishing a transitional home in El Dorado. That group met once a month from August through December.
    They are recommending amending the zoning to allow this as a special use in R-3, C-1 and O-I zoning districts.
    According to state statutes any amendment to the zoning regulations requires a public hearing before and recommendation from the Planning Commission. The City Commission will consider directing the Planning Commission to conduct a public hearing.
    In other business, the commission will:
    • set a hearing dates to spread the costs for the paving of School Road and Third Avenue.
    • consider a resolution for construction of additional t-hangars at the El Dorado Airport.
    • hear the city manger’s report.
    They will meet at 7 p.m. in City Hall.
