Monticello residents sound off about plan for apartments

The Monticello Planning Commission conducted a public hearing last week to consider a rezoning and comprehensive plan amendment from St. Cloud-based IRET Properties for a 92-unit apartment building on 5.2 acres of vacant property 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 project received strong opposition from residents during a July 2 public hearing.
