Council has approved rezoning, with conditions, for six parcels highlighted in yellow. The parcels are located at the intersection of Old Philadelphia Road and Jonah Lane near Walmart.

Jasper City Council unanimously approved conditional rezoning of several parcels near Walmart for a 96-unit apartment complex.

Developer Onyx Investment Services requested six parcels off Jonah Lane, totaling 12.13 acres, be rezoned from C-2 (Commercial) to R-3 (Multi-Family). Developers propose building an apartment complex that will include two tennis courts, two pools, a dog park, and greenspace. If council’s conditions of the approval are met and construction begins, apartments will be in a craftsman style and rent for between $1,200 and $1,500.
