OCEAN CITY — Under an ordinance unanimously introduced by City Council Thursday, July 24, the site of the former Palermo’s Market at Fourth Street and Asbury Avenue could be rezoned for duplexes.

If the ordinance is approved on second reading, after a public hearing, the zoning of the area where the now-vacant market stands would be changed from neighborhood-business to residential duplex, city attorney Dottie McCrosson told City Council at the Thursday meeting.  The zone would require a 30-foot lot frontage, known as the R-2-30 zone. The rest of the block would also be changed to R-2-30 from T-2-40, which requires a wider lot frontage.

According to McCrosson, the proposed new zone better reflects the majority of properties in the block, which she described as a standard method used by the city zoning office.
