Higher density sought

Higher density is moving ahead in downtown Enderby.

City council gave two readings to a bylaw Monday that would convert one second-storey residential unit at 603 Cliff Ave. into three units.

“It’s a positive. We want to get more people into the downtown core,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

The hope is that more people living downtown will bolster businesses and address safety concerns.

“We want people downtown at night. It will make it more vibrant,” said McCune.

There is no parking on the property but McCune says some of the tenants may not drive because of their close proximity to amenities.

The zoning amendment bylaw will be the subject of an upcoming public hearing.

On the main floor of the building is a retail business, Tony O’s Outfitters.
