Plan Commission Approves Rezoning For Greenville Veterinary Clinic

Greenville Veterinary Clinic has taken steps in plans to construct a new facility.

The Greenville Plan Commission conducted public hearings Monday night and approved the rezoning requests of Ostrom-Hemker, LLC.

The commission’s recommendations went to the city council, which approved them at a special meeting Tuesday night.

Both requests were to rezone property along Route 40, south of Wolf Industrial Park, from industrial heavy to industrial light. No public comments were presented during the hearings.

The rezoning is for the current Greenville Veterinary Clinic building at 1720 Route 40 and the site for the new clinic at 2200 Samuel Andrews Drive, just off Route 40.

Lynnette Hemker and Jennifer Ostrom, owners of the veterinarian business, asked that the current facility be rezoned to make it more attractive to potential buyers.

The new, larger building would be constructed on property just under six acres in size. The owners of Greenville Veterinary Clinic indicated the larger facility is needed to accommodate current business. They will be able treat larger farm animals at the new location.

Monday’s meeting was the first for new plan commission members Judy Cox, Chance Vohlken and Scott Spencer. They were appointed to the commission following the resignations of Max Sussenbach and Gary Farnsworth and to fill a long-time vacancy.
