City requesting special exception to construct new library

The City of Apalachicola will be on the June 8, 2015 meeting agenda of its Planning & Zoning Commission requesting a special exception to construct a new 3,500 ft. municipal library facility at the Northwest corner of 12th and U.S. Hwy 98 adjacent to the Historic Chapman School building.

As the applicant the city must make the request for a special exception because the property is located in an R-1 single family residential zoned district and the proposed library will be a public facility. However, the city’s land development code does allow for such use if a special exception approval is granted.

The meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m., Monday, June 8, 2015, at the Battery Park Community Center located at 1 Bay Ave in Apalachicola.
