The Stillwater City Council approved a specific use permit from Lakeview Community Church Monday during the council’s 14-minute meeting.

The church is hoping to expand into the multi-family residential lot it also owns at 1624 W. Lakeview.

Stillwater Special Project Planner Patty Evans said the church’s parking lot will extend partially into the residential lot and because of that, the Stillwater Planning Commission recommended the church combine the two parcels of land.

“I believe to the best of my knowledge, (we’ve addressed) the issues and comments,” Jimmy Hill said on behalf of the church.

The council voted to approve the permit unanimously.

Also during the meeting, the council approved without discussion a resolution calling a public hearing regarding the proposed annexation of four tracts of unplatted property “located in the southeast quarter of the southeast quarter of Section 24, Township 19 North, Range 2 east of the Indian Meridian.”

The hearing will be at the council’s regular meeting Feb. 23.

The council tabled an item from the consent docket regarding the drainage easement from Countryside Baptist Church Inc. for more information and revisions on a request from City Attorney John Dorman.

The council voted to approve without discussion the rest of the docket, which included an operating agreement between the city and the Convention and Visitors Bureau, a budget amendment and a memo to set a public hearing for the utility easement closing on 9300 W. Sixth.

The council will meet again 5:30 p.m. Feb. 16 in Stillwater Municipal Building. The council will have a work session during the regular meeting time Monday, said Sherry Fletcher, city public relations director.
