Steinbach, Manitoba — March 27, 2013 — Steinbach City Council has approved a plan to rezone an area of land behind Steinbach Towing after passing its third reading.
The land, which was formerly designated as residential, will become commercial property with the decision.
The motion passed its second reading in December 2012 without opposition from the community, but because changes to Manitoba’s Official Community Plan need provincial approval, its third reading was delayed.
With the rezoning now approved, Steinbach Towing owner Marty Rempel is free to expand his operations.
“It went good, it all went smoothly,” Rempel says of the decision. “I expanded my shop last year and now I’m planning to expand my compound.”
