(SEYMOUR) - A proposal to rezone property along Burkart Boulevard to allow for commercial development failed to receive enough support from the Seymour Plan Commission.

Jeremy Gray, head of the city's planning and zoning department, says the mile stretch of road connects State Road 11 to North O'Brien Street, allowing traffic to quickly get to the east side of the city without having to drive into town. The property is currently zoned R-S or rural suburban, which is a zoning classification not used in city limits.

The property, all privately owned, was annexed by the city after the construction of the Burkart bypass, which was finished three years ago.
