The Freeport property which was proposed as the site of a Menards store will again be the subject of a public hearing before the Decorah Planning & Zoning Commission.

Property owner Allan Dahlen has resubmitted a request to rezone the property from F-1 Agricultural to C-4 Shopping Center.  The Planning & Zoning Commission has scheduled a public hearing for Monday, June 10th, at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall.

The Decorah Planning & Zoning Commission last August voted 4-3 against a request by Menards to rezone property along Old Stage Road from "floodplain" to "Shopping Center Commercial."

Menard, Inc. proposed building a 209,500 square foot store, with 140,000 square feet of the building to be dedicated to sales space and the rest to be dedicated to storage of large items, office space and other uses.
