BIG SPRING - A new retirement housing development won't be coming to Big Spring.

City Council members shot the idea down on Tuesday.

Many people living in the neighborhood voiced their opposition to the home because it would've led to a zoning change.

They were also concerned that it would affect the value of their homes.

City officials say they want to bring more developers to the area but they already have designated areas zoned for these types of projects.

The city hopes to work with the developers of the retirement community in the future.
