Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners (IOCP) is proposing a multifamily “affordable housing” rental project at the corner of Rice Street and Grand Ave in Wayzata, MN. Surprisingly enough there is opposition to this. They are going before the City Council tonight for project approval.
The IOCP Grand Avenue project will once again be before the City Council tonight, and Wayzata.com will be covering all the action.
Will the Council elect to follow the recommendation and guidelines of the Wayzata Planning Commission, the Housing and Redevelopment Authority, and the City Charter by voting the project down? Or will the members succomb to pleasing IOCP by allowing this project? We will find out tonight!
UPDATE: The City Council narrowly approved motion upon conditions. 3/2 vote. (see full transcript)
Ms. Bader made a motion, seconded by Mr. Amdal, directing staff to prepare a resolution of approval for Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners (IOCP) to redevelop the former IOCP office building at 110 Grand Avenue South into six units of affordable rental housing subject to the development agreement addressing events of default to prevent the subject property from becoming market rate housing or a nuisance. The motion carried 3/2 (Tanner, Mullin).
