Church site and spa up for rezoning

A public hearing on the rezoning of two well-known sites in Terrace B.C. will be held May 12

  • May. 5, 2014 7:00 a.m.

The property on the corner of Sparks and Park where the Christ Lutheran church now sits and the location of the Spa Essentials building at 4814 Lazelle are to be subjects of a rezoning public hearing May 12 by Terrace city council.

Principal Construction, which owns the Lazelle Mini-Mall across the alley from the church, has put in a purchase offer on the property under the condition it can be rezoned to be used as a parking lot.

The intended use would mean demolition of the church building in the summer.

Christ Lutheran Church has been at the location since the mid-1950s and this year marks its 60th anniversary. Declining membership has affected the church’s ability to continue at the location.

Also up for comment May 12 is a rezoning application that would see the uses for a building in which Spa Essentials is located at 4814 Lazelle changed to residential, R3 multi-family housing. The property is for sale and the intended purchaser is Manny Hong.

The large house is included on the city’s heritage registry and was constructed in 1938 as a single family home by Will Little and became the Dudley and Mary Little residence, and has a “beautiful hardwood stair and bannister,” according to the city website. Its position on the heritage registry means that certain aspects need to be maintained – it “required the owners, current and in the future, to maintain the exterior heritage character of the building.”

“The applicant is aware that this building has heritage value, and does not intend to undertake major renovations to the building,” reads information filed on the rezoning request by city officials in advance of the May 12 public hearing.
