The Cheney City Council voted 6-1 with Curt Huff casting the only nay to approve new language for single family dwelling occupancy. The new code now specifies what constitutes family. Eastern Washington University students had protested the change but there was a general misunderstanding that the change would alter the number of non-related people who could live in a dwelling.
The Cheney Planning Commission agreed to a compromise with Vendervert Development over a wetlands issue that would allow construction of a third phase of apartments along Al Ogdon Way.
