Vote on deaf town delayed

From: Rapid City Journal, SD - Aug 17, 2005

SALEM (AP) — The McCook County Commission has again delayed a final vote on a zoning ordinance that would allow construction of a town that serves people who use sign language.

A group against the Laurent project told commissioners Tuesday new information suggests part of the land south of Salem was zoned incorrectly.

Commissioners have spent months grappling with the ordinance, which will govern future projects in the county.

Laurent needs a new zoning ordinance because the county's use-based zoning does not allow for construction of a town.
