The Jefferson County Commission rejected a request by developers to rezone approximately 20 acres of land off of Patton Chapel Road.

The developers had wanted to turn the property into multi-family housing that would include just over 300 units.

Dozens of residents and a couple of Hoover City Council representatives showed up at the commission meeting to oppose the development.

They based their opposition on concerns over runoff, density and additional traffic.

The commission agreed with them, with three commissioners voting to deny the rezoning request.

Commissioner Jim Carns abstained on the vote and Commissioner Bobby Humphryes was not present.
