Council Split On Multi-Family Development In Riverstone

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - City Council defeated a bylaw amendment on Monday that would have allowed 38 multi-family units to go up in the Riverstone subdivision.

 

Originally, the area structure plan called for 128 multi-family units, but administration felt they could lower the number based on other availability in the city.

 

However, after a public hearing on the matter and strong opposition from the neighbourhood, the Council vote on Monday was split 4-4, resulting in the amendment being defeated. Mayor Rajko Dodic, along with Councillors Liz Iwaskiw, Tom Wickersham, and Bridget Mearns supported the development, while Councillors Faron Ellis, Joe Mauro, Ryan Parker and Jeff Coffman were opposed. Councillor Jeff Carlson did not vote due to a conflict.

 

Mayor Dodic is worried about what this means for the future of multi-family units in the city. He says "you can get in a situation where you're just going to have multi-family residential units all in one area, but that doesn't work that well either."

 

The city's land development department will now go back to the drawing board to try and figure out what to do with this phase of the Riverstone development.
