Chapati decision tabled

The City Council voted 4-2 a few minutes ago to table a decision on the Chapati relocation to the next meeting, July 12. Malecha, Bond, Vohs, and Pokorney voted in favor. Graham and Covey voted against. Linstroth was not present.

For background on the meeting, see last Saturday's Northfield News article by Carol Roecklin:
Council to discuss Chapati Monday
Two decisions by the Northfield City Council Monday could determine whether or not Norm Butler and Diane Burry can relocate their Indian restaurant, Chapati, from the Archer House to the corner of Woodley and Division streets... The council is being asked to determine whether it will alter the city's Comprehensive Plan followed by a zoning amendment change from a residential (R-2) to a commercial fringe district (C-2). The plan is a guiding document that addresses Northfield's future by analyzing anticipated changes in land use, housing parks, transportation, economic development and the natural environment. In addition to policy statements, the plan includes a future land use map. Following a map change, rezoning the property would occur.
