Approval of a zoning change that would allow construction of Jethro Bodine’s Beverly Hillbillies Mansion & Casino was continued by the Douglas County Planning Commission on Tuesday.

Following hours of protracted debate, planning commissioners split 3-3, with commissioners Mike Olson, Matt McKinney and Bob Conner voting yes.

Commissioners Jim Madsen, Rick Ross and Margaret Pross vetoed the zoning approval.

Citing a previous engagement, Commissioner Mike Howell excused himself from the proceedings at 5:30 p.m.

The issue will be continued to the July planning commission meeting.
