Yorkton council unanimously approved a discretionary use application which proposes the construction of twelve semi-detached dwellings, as defined in City of Yorkton Zoning Bylaw on Cameron Way.
The property is zoned R-3 Medium Density Residential and the proposed semi-detached dwellings are listed as discretionary uses, explained Carleen Koroluk, Planner with the City at the regular meeting of Council Monday.
The proposal had gone through the city's public notice process, including advertisement in the local newspaper, at City Hall and on the City website.
The application was referred to the Planning and Infrastructure Commission at their December 16, 2020 meeting. The Commission reviewed the proposal and subsequently carried a resolution recommending approval of the application, noting that affordable housing opportunities are a definite benefit to the community.
