Community Meeting Tonight!
Monday, April 14, 2014
Meeting starts at 7pm
On the agenda:
Tinney & Associates is seeking a rezoning of 2121 Douglas Street from existing C-SS (Special Service Station District) to a C1-S (Limited Commercial Service Station District) zoning which allows a broad range of uses.
The existing one storey service station building will remain with architectural upgrades proposed to permit a new user, most likely retail, office use, or high-tech.
Everyone welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
