Heath City Council voted 4-2 last week to change 14 acres between 986 and 1018 Thornwood Drive from agriculture to light manufacturing.

Councilmen Tim Kelley and Chris May were the two dissenters.

The zoning change includes the following five conditions:

The northern 187-foot section along Thornwood Drive must be used for access only, and the southern 40-foot second must remain unused.

All inventory must be stored and completely enclosed along residential properties.

Outside lighting would be controlled directionally to avoid affecting adjacent properties.

No building or structure may be built within 50 feet of residential property lines.

Screening and buffering, similar to what separates Lowe's Home Improvement Center on Hebron Road from adjacent properties, must be put in place.

Adjacent property owners fought for the conditions to protect their properties from future manufacturing uses. The property owners, Jeffery and Tara Bush of Florida, did not report a user when applying for the zoning.
