A rezoning proposal on Fifth Street SE that council first received in May 2014 has come back in a new form.

Ponich Properties Ltd. has applied to rezone two properties near the intersection of Fifth Avenue SE from single-family residential to high-density residential to accommodate a 24-unit rental apartment building.

Since the initial application, the proponents purchased another lot to the north, providing more land for parking. Coun. Alan Harrison noted the parking, which was earlier a bone of contention for neighbours, looks a lot better.

A public hearing will be held on Jan. 11 at council’s evening meeting.
