* Approved the request for a minor subdivision for H&H Medical at 3251 Shawnee Drive. Plan Director Dan Kirk presented the board with potential plans and says t building site is next to Dr. Ovais Raza's medical office.

* Established a passenger loading zone in front of a home in the 1300 block of K Street.
