The grand forks planning and zoning commission gave preliminary approval this week to a conditional use permit allowing Leighton broadcasting to build new studios south of grand forks.   The pacel in question includes the existing site of k-n-o-x radio.   constuction of the state-of-the-art studios is pegged at upwards of one-and-a-half million dollars and is scheduled to begin this summer.   The current site is zoned agricultural.   City planner brad gengler says that presents a roadblock of sorts in terms of current zoning.   A recommendation to amend the ordinance to allow radio and t-v stations in an a-one zone was shot down in favor of issuing a conditional use permit. 

The motion passed on a unanimous vote.
