Voters again turn down referendum

CONCORD TWP. — Voters in unincorporated Concord Township once again turned down Issue 13 Trafalgar zoning referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot.

The Troy Daily News apologizes for the error.

According to the board of elections unofficial results, 1,327 votes “No” and 703 votes “Yes” were cast for the issue. A “yes” vote would approve the rezoning, a “no” vote would turn down the rezoning issue.

This is a referendum on a zoning change approved by Miami County Commissioners for a 50-acre tract on Monroe-Concord Road in Concord Township. The request is to change the zoning from General Agriculture to Single Family.

The zoning request includes plans for a housing development at the site.

Trafalgar first attempted to have the land rezoned in 1995 and has lost 18 referendum votes over the past 20 years.

According to the Nov. 7, 2017, general election results, the referendum failed with 69 percent of voters against the rezoning issue and 31 percent for it.
