Monogram Co.'s rezoning goes to voters in March
The Keep Dewey-Humboldt Rural Committee collected the required number of signatures to place a referendum on the March ballot for Dewey-Humboldt voters, town officials announced Monday.
The referendum requests D-H voters to decide whether Monogram Co. can put retail businesses on a 28-acre piece of commercial property on the former Young's Farm.
If voters agree in March with the town council's decision, Monogram will move forward with its plans to put in the Village Marketplace that will include a hometown grocery store, smaller boutique-type businesses, and 50 residential units that will go above the retail stores.
If voters disagree with the council's decision, they would overturn what was decided in July and the property would revert back to the original zoning of 6.5 acres commercial and 21.5 acres residential property.
"I will be formally informing the mayor that all is in order and that a call of election will go out stating we are going to be holding an election in March," said Town Clerk Debbie Gifford.
The publicity pamphlets will contain the same language contained in the petition that circulated throughout the community. Gifford said that anybody who wants to submit an argument for or against the referendum may do so up until the deadline in December.
