Shenandoah rejects Vaughan’s rezoning

HISTORY train Luray

July 25, 1991 — Shenandoah Town Council members Tuesday denied a Shenandoah man’s rezoning request — but not until after a heated debate.

The six council members and Mayor Clinton O. Lucas squared off over the fate of Jeffrey Vaughan’s machine tooling shop on Hockman Avenue.

Vaughan had petitioned the town planning commission Tuesday morning to have two lots on his property rezoned from residential to industrial so he could expand his business.

The commission, which included several town council members, denied the request.

After more than 10 minutes of debate, the council deadlocked 3-3 on Councilman Bill Kite’s motion to grant the request.

Lucas cast the tie-breaking vote against Vaughan’s request.
