Two shopping centers in Morton received a new zone type at the September 3 Morton Village Board meeting.

Both the Field Shopping Center and Jackson Plaza were rezoned to B-3 from B-2. The change was made to allow for more permitted uses than what B-2 currently offered.

This will give more opportunity for empty spaces in the plazas to be filled.

An ordinance regarding residential driveways and petition for annexation were tabled to allow additional feedback regarding each topic.

Also, at the meeting the Morton Chamber of Commerce President Leigh Ann Brown invited all trustees to the opening of the Morton Pumpkin Festival on Wednesday, September 11.
