Council Tables Church Re-Zoning Request
ST. CLOUD -- A South St. Cloud church has two weeks to come up with a redevelopment plan for the old Garfield School or a re-zoning request will be denied by the St. Cloud City Council.
The council tabled the request to re-zone the two parcels of land at 712 17th Avenue South and 1602 7th Street South until the council meeting on May 7th.
Good News Assembly of God Church is asking for a re-zoning from a single-family and two-family zoning district to a Planned Unit Development which would allow for multi-family or apartment living.
The council has directed city staff to prepare a document outlining why the request is being denied unless an acceptable development plan can be reached by the May 7th meeting.
The Planning Commission has already denied the request citing a number of reasons including neighborhood opposition.
