City Council OKs annexation, residential zoning off Route K

Despite opposition, the Columbia City Council unanimously approved R-1 residential zoning and annexation for an 88-acre plot south of Route K.

The land, owned by John Sam and Susan Williamson, came before the Columbia Planning and Zoning Commission in late August. At that meeting, the commission voted 6-3 to oppose giving the land an R-1 designation. The commission favored a designation of planned-unit development.
