Changes to the Land Use Map was discussed.  It was recommended that the area to the rear of Leathems be changed to Single Family Residential (R1).  This area would include the property west of the rear of the building (between Poplar and Center Streets).  The other change will be the redistricting of Center and Main Streets to the Professional Residential District (R2).
