The Planning and Zoning Commission of the city of St. Maries will have a public hearing next month to consider applications for a zoning amendment.

The areas where zone changes are wanted are two properties located at 402 N. 10th street and 404 N. 10th street.

An application was submitted by Sumner Properties LLC requesting to change the existing zoning map from a manufacturing and industrial zone to a general commercial zone.

Sumner Properties LLC is also requesting a special use permit to allow a fitness, dance, and martial arts studio to operate out of the property at 402 N. 10th Street.

“They want to make sure that they go through the right steps and get everything right,” City Clerk Kriss Gibson said.

Copies of the application are available to review at St. Maries City Hall. Those who are interested will be given time to present a testimony in favor or against the application. Written comments will also be accepted and will be accepted in advance of or at the public hearing.

Written comments can be submitted to Attn.: City Clerk, St. Maries City Hall, 602 College Avenue, St. Maries, ID 83861.

The public hearing will be on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 5:30 p.m at City Hall in St. Maries.

For more information contact the city clerk, Kriss Gibson, at 208-245-2577.
