Rogers County Board of Commissioners approved three zoning changes during the March 13 meeting.

Public hearings were held regarding the 4.421 acres at 6348 Weathers Drive, belonging to Rusty and Kristi Weathers, which goes from agricultural (A) to agricultural residential (AR); a 10-acre tract splits off 2.5 acres a quarter-mile south of E. 380 Road and S. 4060 Road, in Talala, belonging to David Chapel, from A to AR; and at 25875 S. 4130 Road in Claremore belonging to Rodney and Laurel DeLammermore trust, from AG to Agricultural Residential (AR) for a residential for a two-lot, one-block split and plat.

No one was present to speak against each of the four hearings, so all four were approved.
