9/29/2015 FARGO (KFGO-AM) – Residents of the Roosevelt Neighborhood Association pleaded with Fargo City Commissioners to deny a request for a conditional use permit for rental property at 1350 12th Street North.
Steve Bill says he and his wife spent time and money remodeling the house. Bill wanted to add another tenant, but needed the permit to allow four unrelated people to live in the residence, one more than now allowed by code. He told commissioners he’s a responsible owner and would not let the property get run-down.
Jim Laschkowitsch says the neighborhood has worked hard to retain and increase owner-occupied housing and he says approving the permit would set an “extremely bad precedent.” He says other landlords would ask for the same treatment to allow more renters.
City commissioners got the message, denying the request on a four to one vote.
Earlier, the city planning department approved the permit, but the planning commission denied it and the property owners appealed the decision to the city commission.
