City council brief: Cavers’ carriage request approved
A city councillor’s application to build a laneway home is moving to public hearing.
Coun. Donovan Cavers has applied to rezone a Douglas Street property owned by his mom, Anne Grube, to allow the construction of a carriage house.
It’s the second such application to come from a council member this year.
Coun. Marg Spina’s application met with approval in September.
The decision passed unanimously, but with a lower than average number of votes.
Cavers, Spina and Coun. Tina Lange, who owns a number of rental suites, all recused themselves for the vote, and Coun. Ken Christian was absent.
