BRAINERD CITY COUNCIL: Approval of zoning changes could come next month


Before it takes any action on a proposed zoning map update that’s been worked on by the Planning Commission for a year and-a-half, the Brainerd City Council on Monday gave a last chance for residents and property owners to offer their opinions. 

The zoning map proposes numerous changes, including a reduction in the number of zones that allow multi-family housing, creating a Washington Street commercial district and the creation of another single-family residential zone.

I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU.
