A public meeting will be held Monday, Aug. 13 in the council chamber, beginning at 6:30 p.m., to get public input on a rezoning application for up to six lots.

The development area is east of Circle Street, with land to be zoned established residential with site-specific provisions pertaining to lot frontage and lot depth, to build single, detached homes.
