Resolution to impose a temporary moratorium on industrial uses at the properties located at 331-333 S. 108 St. and 500 Block S. 108 St. (Tax Key Nos. 414-9990-001 and 414-9991-002)

Body
WHEREAS, the City of West Allis zoning ordinance currently allows industrial uses as permitted by right or as a special use within section 12.45 of the Revised Municipal Code; and,

WHEREAS, the City is in the process of a zoning ordinance update and zoning map amendments. The 2030 land use plan calls for the subject properties to be rezoned to commercial land use.
