Utah County commissioners rejected plans to change certain agriculture zones to rural residential zones at a Monday meeting.
The rejection leaves the county's master plan as is and avoids a property-tax increase for residents who would been affected by the proposed change.Commissioners discarded recommendations made by the Planning Commission - a move that would have changed some agriculture A-1 zones to rural residential - in favor of a zoning-text change.
Commissioners officially closed the public hearing on the master plan Monday and set May 14 as the date for a public hearing on the proposed zone-text ordinance and zone-map change.
The commission proposal would amend the A-1 zone to a minimum lot area of five acres. The change would allow a person to build a home on five acres instead of 40 acres.
