Temporary cement silo set for a vote

The North Little Rock City Council is scheduled to vote Monday on an ordinance that would allow the city to create a temporary dry cement silo at 1205 Orange St.

The ordinance states that installing the silo will reduce the amount of time the city's Street Department spends loading cement into trucks and will save money by reducing the number of 1-ton bags of dry cement purchased.

A sign has been placed on the property, and notice has been given to property owners within 200 feet of the potential silo. The property will have a 6-foot chain link fence surrounding it.

The request has not been reviewed by the Planning Commission, and the city is seeking approval from the council.

College requests property rezoning

Shorter College Inc. will be asking the North Little Rock City Council on Monday to approve an ordinance to allow office and classroom space at 608 N. Vince St.

The college, at 604 N. Locust St., is seeking to rezone the North Vince Street property from a residential area to to allow professional office space. The application was denied 3-4 by the North Little Rock Planning Commission on Nov. 10.

The request hasn't been reviewed again by the Planning Commission, and the college is seeking approval from the City Council.
