In 1959 the owners of Toye Brothers Cab Co. petitioned for the rezoning of Richard Street between Annunciation and Chippewa. They proposed that the existing Multiple Family classification be changed to Light Industrial so that they could demolish the house shown here on the corner along with the structures behind it on Chippewa (not shown) and develop a parking lot for the company's taxicabs. The Planning Commission and Council agreed with the petitioner and the request was granted.
