City Council will hear from citizens on Tuesday, May 24, at a public hearing regarding the rezoning of 7150-50 Ave (Quality Inn) from C4 Commercial (Major Arterial) District to C5 Commercial (Mixed Use) District to accommodate future residential uses on the site.
The public hearing comes after City Council approved first reading of the proposed rezoning on Monday, April 25. The site now features a 114-room hotel. Owners want to convert some or all of the hotel rooms into multi-family (apartment-style) dwelling units, which are permitted use within the C5 district. The land is now zoned C4 for primarily commercial uses. The housing types allowed within C5 are limited and do not include emergency shelters.
Public hearings provide an opportunity for members of the public to speak to Council on advertised planning and development matters and other matters as determined by Council.
