Housing incentive applications approved


Mon, Apr 13th, 2015
Posted in Preston Government

At the April 6 Preston City Council meeting three applications for 2015 housing incentives were approved. The incentive program is a partnership between the Preston Economic Development Authority (EDA), Preston Public Utilities, city government, and the Preston Golf and Country Club.

The program offers three incentive applications for new construction, three for existing housing, and three for housing renovation projects. The council approved three applications as recommended by the EDA; two for existing housing for Gabby Kinneberg and Kenneth “John” Hall and one for new construction for Tom Burke.

•A rezoning request from Eric and Tara Corson to rezone their property at 516 Pleasant Street NE from R-2 (Family Residential) to R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) was approved. This will allow the property to be used for weekly and nightly rental or a ‘vacation’ rental house. Eric Corson said he had discussed this with a number of his neighbors. Planning and Zoning had held a public hearing and recommended approval since R-3 was compatible zoning in the neighborhood. Kerry Soiney had written a letter to P and Z asking that renters respect neighboring property owners’ rights to privacy and peace and quiet. There was no other comment at the public hearing.

•This is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Dodge-Fillmore-Olmsted County Victim Services asked permission to place teal ribbons along Fillmore Street for the month of April. The intention is to draw attention to sexual violence and to promote prevention and to take a stand against sexual violence. Placement of the ribbons was approved.

City administrator Joe Hoffman reported that Police Chief Matt Schultz feels there is a strong pool of candidates with the part-time officers. Preston has three full- time officers, including the chief. Preston cont .....
