Columbus auto lot discussion delayed again

Columbus City Council members agreed Jan. 22 to continue their review of a business rezoning request to a February meeting. A representative of Insurance Auto Auctions, Inc. told city staff Jan. 21 that the company was reviewing alternatives related to its plan for opening a sales lot on Lake Drive. 

The Cook County, Ill., business would need a conditional use permit to operate a lot at the Lake Drive location, along with rezoning and a comprehensive plan amendment for developing 40 acres of agricultural land, west of the existing lot, to complete its site plan. Columbus officials are expecting a presentation from the company Feb. 12.
