5 appeal zoning decision on conservation land

Five people who own 10 acres at the corner of routes 140 and 91 have appealed the Carroll commissioners' decision not to rezone the land from conservation to general business.

Michael G. Cornias, Fontini M. Cornias, Arthur C. Risso, Judith G. Risso and Charles Thomas Winebarger Jr. have filed an appeal in Carroll Circuit Court.

The commissioners voted in July not to rezone the land on the northeast corner of the intersection. They said conservation was a proper use of the land, which has a steep slope and a stream.

Neighbors had complained a rezoning would increase traffic at the corner.
