Rural suite wanted

CITY COUNCIL has been asked to allow a standalone suite on property zoned rural residential.

Current zoning limits secondary suites to within a principal residence but a staff memo to council says that for large rural properties “there seems to be few, if any reasons to  confine a suite within the owner’s principal residence.”

A zoning amendment “will possibly provide an incentive for the creation of more affordable rental units in the community, as well as to allow seniors [to]age in place.”

Council considered the request Jan. 28.
