Recommended by the Gentry Planning Commission after a public hearing and passed by the Gentry City Council was an ordinance amending the city’s comprehensive plan in order to add a restriction against heavy industrial uses within Gentry’s planning jurisdiction. Included in the definition of heavy industrial uses are salvage or reclamation services; smelting, metal processing or similar activities; commercial recycling, asphalt shingle grinding, tire shredding or grinding; construction or demolition recycling or processing activities; and other industrial recovery operations that would include but not be limited to dismantling, crushing and/or baling of vehicles, construction materials or similar operations. The ordinance was recommended unanimously by the Planning and Zoning Commission after receiving complaints from property owners about a recycling facility which opened briefly without proper permits along Old Highway 59 south of Gentry but within the city of Gentry’s planning jurisdiction.
