Residents speak out against rezoning of old football field property

Following a public hearing on the rezoning of the “old football field” property, it was the consensus of the Lennox Council to not rezone the property to General Business District, due to the concerns brought by residents living in the neighborhood.
Lennox Properties, LLC had purchased the property from the Lennox School District. The sale was disputed by the City of Lennox, because the City had a right of first refusal on the property which gave them an opportunity to match any bids on the property. However, because the property was sold in combination with the old school administration building, it was the opinion of the City that the sale was not valid. The City also had a use agreement with the school that allowed them to use the property for another ten years. The City has taken legal action to retain the property.
