Normandeau apartment development approved

Normandeau could get a significant residential boost.

The municipal planning commission approved by a 3-2 vote a development permit for the construction of two four-storey apartments off Norquay Street near Normandeau School. The apartments would join four others on the site.

Some neighbours in the area voiced their objection to the project, arguing it would create traffic and parking problems and was too big a development for the area.
