MOUNT VERNON — The city Planning Commission Thursday voted to recommend City Council approve a change in zoning for property at the corner of Progress Drive and Newark Road.

Peridot LLC of Wooster wants to switch about 4.5 acres at the northwest corner of the intersection from R-3, multi-family residential, to General Business to allow the construction of a tire store and service center.
