Action Postponed for Rezoning Request of Former Library

city lynchburg logoThe Lynchburg Planning Commission on Wednesday postponed action on a pending rezoning request for the former Jones Memorial Library. The structure was built in 1900 as the city’s first library; it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Rezoning the site would allow the historic building to be used for events, offices and educational purposes, but officials say limited availability of parking presents challenges. The planning staff will continue to work with the applicant and the matter would be taken up again at the Oct. 22 meeting. City Council will make the final decision after holding a public hearing at a later date.
