Pro­posed re­zon­ing

Public meet­ing be­ing planned to re­view ap­pli­ca­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

Kens­ing­ton res­i­dents will have a chance to voice con­cerns they have with a pro­posed re­zon­ing of the for­mer Nazarene Church build­ing.

The re­zon­ing re­quest comes from Coreen Pickering, who is also a Kens­ing­ton coun­cil­lor. She is ask­ing that 47 Vic­to­ria St. be re­zoned as a com­mer­cial prop­erty.

Pickering, who, along with her hus­band is look­ing to pur­chase the prop­erty, hopes to run a small busi­ness from the lo­ca­tion. That busi­ness would in­clude Is­land-themed cook­ing classes.

A con­di­tion of pur­chase of the prop­erty is that the re­zon­ing be ap­proved.

The is­sue was dis­cussed at this week’s coun­cil meet­ing.

Pickering would nor­mally have had to de­clare a con­flict of in­ter­est and re­move her­self dur­ing the de­bate, but was not in at­ten­dance due to a prior com­mit­ment.

A date for the public meet­ing has not yet been set, but town man­ager Ge­off Baker said it is ex­pected to take place some­time in Au­gust.
