Compressed gas business seeks zoning permission

Suzanne Adams-Ockrassa

KINGMAN - A New Jersey company wants permission from the Mohave County Planning and Zoning Commission to locate an industrial compressed gas-filling station on the corner of Northern Avenue and Lomita Street in Kingman.

According to its website, Matheson Gas of Basking Ridge, N.J. supplies compressed gases and equipment to the medical, electronic and welding industries.

According to information provided to the commission, the company wants to install a gas distribution center with a store to supply equipment to businesses. It's asking for a zoning use permit because the area is currently zoned C-2 general commercial.

C-2 zoning is reserved for retail stores, cleaning businesses, drug stores, offices, auto repair places, bars and restaurants, liquor stores, kennels and veterinary clinics without dog runs and wireless communication towers that are no taller than 50 feet.

According to the county's zoning ordinances, businesses that store bulk flammable gases and liquids for sale are normally only allowed in areas zoned for heavy manufacturing. However, Praxair, another major compressed gas supplier, has a storefront on Northern Avenue that supplies gas and equipment to businesses for welding and cutting jobs.

County staff is recommending approval of the permit.

The commission will consider the request at 10 a.m. today at the County Administration Building, 700 Beale Street.

The commission will also consider:

• Zoning for an RV park in Wikieup.

• A three-year extension of time on the commercial zoning for the Silverado master-planned community east of Kingman on both sides of U.S. 93 between Hidden Valley and Hackberry roads.

• Two zoning use permits for propane tanks and dispensing areas - one in Meadview and one at the Love's truck stop at the intersection of Highway 95 and Interstate 40 near Golden Shores.

• A zoning request to change residential lots from one acre to five acres for a subdivision to be called Winchester Canyon. The subdivision will be located west of Cavalry Ranch Road and north of Fort Beale Drive.

• A zoning request for a developmental disability training center for SOLO America on the corner of College Circle and College Drive in Kingman.

So let me understand Bollinger Ranch Ministries,
Kingman Route 66 Rotary Club,
United Way - Kingman,
Mohave County Fair Association,
Kingman Air & Auto Show,
Bullhead Regional Economic Development all agree that the federal lands in Az are better off in state control and Bruce Bolinger of Bolinger Ranch Ministries speaks for all. I would be surprised at that.

Also I suspect Bruce Bolinger's Bolinger Ranch Minstries enjoys tax exempt status?

Judging by the number of vacant buildings on Northern, if this gas biz were to blow nobody would know.

“All ‘National’ Parks located inside the boundaries of the State of Arizona should be confiscated in the name of ‘Emanate Domain’…”

Since the State of Arizona cannot manage its own State parks please explain how they will be able to handle the three national parks, fourteen national monuments and six national forests within the state or are you interested in only the three national parks (which are within national forest lands)?

Ok so now I have an idea to really get the Fed's attention.

All "National" Parks located inside the boundaries of the State of Arizona should be confiscated in the name of "Emanate Domain"

It is for the benefit of the People and Businesses in the State of Arizona that these areas remain OPEN!


It is time for Arizona and other western states to show the Federal Government that we really do mean business and get rid of "Federal Lands" and the bureaucracy that comes with.

Previous National Park Service employees may be given the opportunity to work for ARIZONA Park Service, or look for work somewhere else, like we have to do in the private sector when another corporation buys the business we are working for.

People of the State of Arizona know what to do with OUR lands, USE THEM to benefit the PEOPLE of the State of Arizona.

We have the opportunity to act in the interest of our State, Let's actually DO SOMETHING and take back our (Arizona) land!
