Industrial Pipe & Supply on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Gainesville hopes to rezone 3.6 acres of land to light industrial.

Update: The rezoning of land at Industrial Pipe & Supply on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was approved by the Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board Tuesday.

The Gainesville City Council will have the final vote on Nov. 5. 

The company wants to rezone 3.6 acres of land to light industrial for a possible future expansion that would include a warehouse for indoor storage.

Industrial Pipe has been operating for 43 years and has been at its current location since 1984. Its existing building is 27,000 square feet. The building is accessed from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, which would not be changed with the rezoning.

No one spoke in opposition to the proposal at Tuesday’s meeting. 

Original story: Industrial Pipe & Supply on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Gainesville hopes to rezone 3.6 acres of land to light industrial, although the company has not finalized plans for how the land could be used.

The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board will hear the idea at its Oct. 8 meeting.

The company has been in business for 43 years and has been at its current location since 1984. Its existing building is about 27,000 square feet, and the company employs 23 people.

Rezoning the land to light industrial would enable Industrial Pipe to expand eventually, likely with more warehouse space, although the company is still trying to determine how the land could be best used, said sales manager Zac Venable.

The existing building is accessed from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, which would not be changed.

Planning staff is recommending approval of the rezoning. The Gainesville City Council will have the final vote on Nov. 5.
