The surrounding property is zoned residential or downtown residential. The property in question is currently zoned C-2 commercial and they are seeking a R3 traditional residential zoning for a single family home.


Dean Byers, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Marshall County told the commission they have built 18 homes adding over $1 million dollars of assessed value in the county. Byers said, “It’s difficult for find build-able lots in Plymouth. When we find a donor, like Jack we are grateful! This allows us to build affordable homes.”


Most recently the Habitat homes average about 1200 square feet and include a basement and parking pad for 2 vehicles. He indicated that the build would be a year away. They are currently interviewing for the next family.
