A variance, site plan and a landscape plan were all approved for CHEP.

The commission also approved a site plan and landscape plan for the Maumelle Service Center.

Two proposed ordinances were also in the works and one was approved while the other put on hold after objections.

A plan to increase the size of sidewalks failed.
