The Indian Head Planning Commission failed to reach a consensus regarding changes and corrections to its zoning ordinance during its meeting Sept. 25, opting instead to continue the discussion during the commission’s next meeting.

Discussion regarding what to do with the town center mixed-use zone at the eastern end of Route 210, which encompasses Poplar Lane through the town limits, has been ongoing since February. The commission has been unable to reach a resolution on whether to amend the TCMX zone to R2, a low- to medium-density residential area.

Town zoning administrator Richard Parks presented a plan to this effect that also proposed moving the TCMX zone down Route 210, which raised concerns among members who wanted to preserve that area’s general commercial zoning from McWilliams Road.

The land surrounding the Village Green and Pavilion was also contested because the post office presented a unique set of challenges as it is federal government property. Members could not come to a conclusion on whether to zone the area as open space or come up with a new zoning designation for it. Ultimately, the commission moved to have Parks draw another version of the proposed changes to present at the October meeting.

The commission also approved the fiscal 2012 annual report, along with new signs for Calojero’s Deli & Pizza and Young’s & Frazier Auto Sales, both on Indian Head Highway.

The Indian Head Planning Commission will hold its next meeting Oct. 16.
