AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - The Auburn City Council met on Nov. 3 and took a few actions. 

The council amended the zoning ordinance to better regulate student housing. They approved a zoning ordinance amendment that reduces the bed density allowance in the University Neighborhood-West district from 255 beds per acre to 170 beds per acre. 

They denied amended Planned Development District for the Hamilton Place shopping center. While the council approved a rezoning of about 4 acres of property behind the center from Rural to Limited Development District, it denied a request to amend the shopping center’s Planned Development District to include the rezoned property, due to traffic safety concerns. 

The council also: 

  • Announced a vacancy on the Public Park and Recreation Board beginning Dec.19 and end Dec. 18, 2026. For more information, visit auburnalabama.org/boards.

  • Approved two warranty deeds. One for property located at 1501 W. Farmville Road, which is the future location of Fire Station No. 6, and one for property located at 365 S. Gay St.

  • Approved the purchase of one 2021 Ford F-550 dump truck for $62,615, and one 2021 Ford F-550 platform truck for $55,948.
