The planning and zoning commission’s effort to strengthen the city’s masonry standards for its residential and commercial districts was shot down by the Killeen City Council on Tuesday after a tiebreaker vote by the mayor.

The proposed ordinance, passed by planning and zoning 5 to 2 before going before the council, would require residential districts zoned single-family residential, residential townhouse single-family, two-family residential, multi-family residential and multi-family apartment residential to consist of 75 percent masonry brick, stone or hard-coat stucco on all sides on the first floor and 50 percent on the second floor.
