(ABC 6 News) -- Residents once again packed the Kasson City council meeting Wednesday.

The proposed Shopko development in the city's Lions Park was initially on the agenda, but we're told it was taken off because the rezone had been turned down at the planning and zoning meeting earlier this week.

Several residents still voiced their concern about the proposed development.

"Nobody was opposed to Shopko or any other business coming to town it was just that location of the city park or the welcoming avenue into town,"  Kasson resident Jerry Berg said.

City officials tell us they will most likely look at the planning commission's recommendation at the next city council meeting in two weeks.
