(FREMONT) - The Fremont Town Council approved the re-zoning of 150 acres of land on the west side of town on Tuesday night. The land is being re-zoned from R-3 Multi-Family and B-1 Small Business to I-2 or Light Industrial. Fremont Town Manager Chris Snyder says this will allow the town to get the site certified so that local and state economic officials can market that property for future employers. The rezoning was given a favorable recommendation by the Fremont Plan Commission on Monday night following a one hour discussion. Snyder also reported on Tuesday night that the sidewalk and drainage project on East Toledo Street is complete and they hope to open bids for the 2014 paving projects during next months Town Council meeting.
