Hermantown’s city council meeting met Monday night, one of the main issues being rezoning of current commercial property.

A landscaping company, is currently using the property. It was home to Engwalls, a greenhouse and greenery center, on 4747 Hermantown Rd.

The rezoning plan will change the existing commercial property to an apartment complex, built by P&R Properties.

Joe Wicklund, as the city of Hermantown’s Communications and Community Engagement, explained how rezoning can be a bit controversial.

“With an engaged resident base, I think any time that there is a possibility for a change, and then that leads to a potential unknown, there’s always going to be some concerns” said Wicklund.

There are more rezoning issues discussed tomorrow evening, at the Planning and Zoning commission’s meeting beginning at 7pm.
