The Leesburg City Commission voted to approve a zoning change to allow a local company to expand its operation.
Metal Structures Company USA LLC requested the city to change the zoning of an 11-acre property to industrial from residential. The property is located west of Flatwoods Road, north of Casteen Road and South of Parkway Boulevard. The property currently has a single family residence with a detached garage and utility building.
Metal Structures plans to construct a 5,000-square-foot office building and a 40,000-square-foot warehouse facility for the manufacture of metal structures and carports.
Dan Miller, planing and zoning director, recommended the zoning changes to help keep the Metal Structures Company in Leesburg.
