Parkside decision postponed
Cheney council pushes rezone request to next meeting in order to be 'better informed'
After roughly 90 minutes plus of testimony and closed-door deliberations, the Cheney City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to postpone a decision on the controversial Parkside Commons apartment complex rezone until its next regularly scheduled meeting April 25.
In making the motion, Councilwoman Teresa Overhauser stated the postponement was so the council could be "better informed" about the issues surrounding the change, which would allow for 39 more units to the proposed complex, as well as visit the site. The motion passed 6-0, with Councilman Ryan Gaard absent from the meeting.
