Cadiz’s zoning ordinance now explicitly allows some businesses to operate in the historic district on Main Street, between Brown Street and East End Cemetery.

At their meeting last Tuesday evening, Cadiz City Council members, after little debate, voted 5 – 0 to pass, on second reading, an ordinance that makes changes to the City’s zoning ordinance. The new text allows the City to give conditional use variances on a case-by-case basis to operate some businesses from their homes in the historic district.

“It’s an ordinance relating to planning and zoning in the City of Cadiz,” said Cadiz City Clerk Lisa Rogers, who read the first part of the ordinance.

Cadiz City Council member Gary Polete abstained, as he owns the Futrell House Bed & Breakfast. Bed and breakfasts are now on the list of allowed businesses and are part of the new conditional use written into the ordinance. Before the change, they weren’t allowed in the historic district.

Other changes include new sign size requirements.
