City Council-Business Zoning

The Winona City Council Monday voted to pass a pair of code amendment to modify density and parking standards in the new B-2.5 zoning district.
The amendment would require new developments provide 2 parking spaces per unit.

Councilwoman Michelle Alexander said she did not feel like the properties in the overlay portion of the district that are already there should have to add additional  parking spaces.

Councilman Gerry Krage cast the lone no vote, noting some confusion concerning the amendement among other council members and wondering what the rush was to vote.

The amendment also requires a maximum density of 1,000 square feet of lot area for each ''new'' dwelling, rooming, or sleeping unit located within the

The new zone was created initially to allow the construction of the condominiums located at the foot of Johnson Street next to the Mississippi River. That project was started by developer Dave McNally but was never completed.

The land has been sold to River Bank in La Crosse and it's unknown what plans the bank may have for the property. The council had previously enacted a moratorium  for four months on developments located in those zones. That moratorium expires August 15th.
