Quesnel City Council gives green light to new 17-unit apartment building

The conversion of a commercial building into a new 17-unit apartment building on Doherty Drive in West Quesnel is back on track.

Concerns were raised by Council and by residents following a public hearing in relation to the proponent’s request for a parking variance to allow for just 3 parking spaces.

An updated plan was then presented at the last meeting (April 2) that included a covenant on a property across the street for an additional 8 stalls.

Tanya Turner, the Director of Development Services, noted that this property was for lower income earners, which meant that not everyone would have a vehicle.

“We had some conversations with other providers of low income facilities in the community and they stated that about 50 percent for low income is kind of a good number for the number of units that require parking, and about 30 percent when it comes to seniors.”

Turner felt that the numbers that the proponent was now providing would fall into that formula and Council agreed in unanimously approving the project.
