Property once targeted for apartments may become a large-scale shopping center instead.
The Jonesboro Metropolitan Area Planning Commission voted to recommend that 20 acres belonging to Anita Arnold off of East Johnson Avenue be rezoned from Residential R-1 to C-3 General Commercial District. The property is located one-quarter mile north of Johnson Avenue and one-quarter mile west of Bridger Road. It joins 36 acres on Johnson that is already zoned C-3. Arnold also owns that property.
