 MOUNT WASHINGTON - Another controversial rezoning request will head to the Mount Washington City Council.

The request received a favorable recommendation from Bullitt County Joint Planning and Zoning, though not unanimously, and coming after lengthy discussion.

The request was made for 229 acres of property along Highway 44 East, backing up to Waterford Road, known locally as the sod farm.

Owners Larry and Carolyn Helm hope to rezone the property from Agricultural and R-1 Residential to R-2 Residential, with plans to create a new subdivision.
