Monticello Planning Commission will consider rezoning for new apartments

The Monticello Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing tonight (Tuesday, July 2) to consider a rezoning and comp plan amendment from St. Cloud-based IRET Properties for a 92-unit apartment building on 5.2 acres of vacant land within the southeast quadrant of County Highway 39 and Hart Boulevard.
IRET is seeking rezoning and re-designation of the city land use requirements for the site from commercial and regional business zoning to residential and medium-high density residential. The five-member Monticello Planning Commission advises city leaders regarding development, including amendments to the comprehensive plan, zoning, platting, variances and land use issues.
