City will look at condo zone proposal (05/12/2013)
By Chris Rogers

Winona city staff have proposed their solutions to avoid what they have described as potentially negative consequences of development in the city’s broad B-2.5 zoning district, which includes the condominium formerly owned by Dave McNally. The B-2.5 zoning district was created at the same time that the condominium was proposed. After a bank took ownership of the condo this spring and the new owner found a potential buyer, staff became concerned that because of a lack of zoning and parking restrictions, the condo could be converted into a densely populated residential development with no off-street parking. Following recommendations from staff, the City Council enacted a four-month moratorium on any new development in the district and called on the Planning Commission to develop recommendations for parking and density restrictions in the district.

City staff released a proposal that will be presented to the Planning Commission on Monday, May 13. That proposal amends the zoning ordinance to require two off-street parking spots per dwelling unit (or room) and that dwelling units be no smaller than 1,500 square feet. Previously, there had been no requirement for off-street parking or minimum room size.
