The Ashland Board of Alderman voted Tuesday night to allow the rezoning of CL Richardson’s property on Liberty Lane from commercial to residential.

Scott Schooler said he wants to buy Richardson’s land so his company, Schooler Construction, can build six duplexes on the property.

Schooler spoke to residents at Tuesday night’s meeting and answered questions about their concerns, such as if there is enough room for six duplexes and how many trees would be cut down.

Residents said they did not want the property rezoned because duplexes would cause more traffic for the area, the potential for lower property values and the potential for more security problems.
