Cheney commission begins hearing on Clay Street rezone
Proposal would allow for potentially more multifamily residential density next to Centennial Park
Cheney’s Planning Commission opened a somewhat unusual public hearing Monday night on a proposed rezone that has some local residents not only frustrated about the proposal, but also that the area is even zoned the way it is in the first place.
The city is considering a request to change the zoning of a land parcel adjacent to Centennial Park from R-3 multifamily residential to R-3H high density multifamily residential. The change would allow parcel owner Randy Gillingham to construct a 4,550-square-foot, 14-unit apartment building at 625 Clay St. where a single-family home now stands.
