Key vote this week could determine future of proposed apartment complex in Grand Marais
The Cook County Housing Redevelopment Authority and Minnesota-based P&R Properties will be asking for a permit Wednesday, May 3, to build housing in Grand Marias.
The 51-unit apartment complex would be located below the water tower on the curve leading up the Gunflint Trail on the edge of city limits.
The request for a conditional use permit will come before the Grand Marais Planning and Zoning committee. The committee members listed on the city’s website include Michael Gary, Anton Moody, Stacey Hawkins, Ben Peters and Brandon Batchelor.
Earlier this year, the city sold the land where the apartments would be built to the HRA for $1. Following that, planning and zoning and the city council changed the zoning ordinance so such a project would be allowed in this location
The Planning and Zoning meeting starts at 5:15 tomorrow at City Hall in Grand Marais.
If approved, the Grand Marais City Council would also need to approve the project. The next meeting of the city council is Wednesday, May 10.
