The Stanfield Board of Commissioners approved unanimously for re-zoning two tracts of land located on Hwy. 200. The tracts of land to be zoned are owned by James and Lorrie Castonguay and are approximately 2.8 acres out of 40 acres. The zoning classification will have the property changed from residential to commercial use.

The Castongauys have submitted designs and plans for a grooming and kennel business located on the 2.8 portion of the 40 acres. The property is in adjacent to the Austen Oaks neighborhood. 

More than 50 residents and concerned citizens attended the public hearing, and many spoke for and against the re-zoning at the hearing held in front of the Stanfield Town Hall prior to the commissioners’ meeting.
