While Marmora and Lake Council recently shot down a zoning request for a new apartment building, another nearby municipality says the process with the same company is moving forward there.
Centre Hastings Mayor Tom Deline says council there has given design guidelines to FairTradeWorks, for its proposed 20-unit building in the downtown and if their initial drawings meet those requirements, the project will have full support from council through the zoning process.
Deline says the building will have to be no more than five storeys high and FairTradeWorks will have to agree to one parking space per unit, instead of one and a half.
The project would be built on town-owned land, would include a couple of storefronts on the ground level and would be walking distance from other downtown amenities and facilities.
Deline says he knows of at least eight seniors who are interested in the apartments and hopes to see the initial design drawings within the next couple of weeks.
