Beckley to discuss rezoning issue

City leaders in Beckley will decide later this month whether a residential property will be rezoned. Rep. Nick Rahall wants Beckley officials to allow him to subdivide the property he owns and lease part of it to a commercial business. Two lots rezoned from a one-family district to a general commercial district and Enterprise Rent-A-Car would build a new office there. The Register-Herald says the Beckley Planning Commission approved Rahall's request Tuesday and recommended it to City Council, which hold a public hearing Aug. 28 and then make a final decision.
