Plans for a 26-unit residential development slated for the corner of Richter Street and Clement will be up for debate at a June 14 public hearing, council heard Monday.

“The proposal is a welcome addition to an area deserving of redevelopment and could serve to catalyze further investment in the neighbourhood,” read a report on the development.

“It is always difficult to achieve a viable land assembly in a single detached residential neighbourhood, so the applicant musts be commended for their patience in this regard.”

City staff went on to say that an apartment at the location represents the highest and best use of the site and it is positive that the proposal task advantage of the medium density zoning allowed by the Official Community Plan.
