Ham Lake approves ordinance amendment

An ordinance amendment allowing used car sales in CD-1 zoning districts in Ham Lake has been approved.

The council approved the amendment Jan. 7 as part of the consent agenda.

The amendment adds used car sales as a conditional use for existing businesses in the automobile industry located in CD-1 zoning.

These existing businesses include automobile specialty shops, automobile repair facilities, recreational vehicle sales and new car sales lots.

Under the revised ordinance, the city may limit the number of vehicles for sale on the property and require screening and other items as part of approval.
