The Decorah Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing Monday night at 7 p.m. on a second request to rezone floodplain near Walmart.
Allan Dahlen has asked to rezone about 31 acres from F-1 floodplain to C-4 shopping center commercial.
Dahlen is being represented by Viking Realtors Broker and Real Estate Agent Tade Kerndt of Decorah who said the goal is to have the property rezoned so that any potential businesses interested in the site won’t have to go through the “hassle” of having it rezoned.
It’s the same property that Menards had considered as a site for a new store. The company withdrew its request to rezone the property in October after the Commission denied its rezoning request in August on a 4-3 vote. The Commission makes recommendations on rezoning requests to the Decorah City Council.
