In making this move, the town would add one more elected official. Mayor Scott Hatsell is on recotrd as supporting this change of government.
December 3 2019: Town planning board approved by a 5-2 margin to recommend that commissioners take on rezoning a 0.4-acre piece of land currently zoned for residential use and allow for it to have a B-1 designation for a business that is planned there. The planning board’s approval now puts the debate with town commissioners who likely will hear public comments on the proposal. Earlier in the year, commissioners denied a request to rezone another property directly across from the one that was debated on December 3. Planning board members Paul Garavaglia and John Zimmerman voted against the measure, with Jerry Riggs, Josh Reilly, Larry Bragg, T.J. Williams and Joe Marello voting for the measure.

At present, there are several alternative plans of which Cedar Point commissioners are studying.
