Land use reclassification for Oliver Building

City Council approved the reclassification of the land use controls for the Oliver Building in downtown Lethbridge.

The building, located at 316 5 Street South, is currently owned by the City of Lethbridge. In preparation for the sale of the property, Council approved rezoning the land use from downtown commercial to direct control. The purpose of this change is to exclude certain uses and to provide development guidance for the design, character and appearance of the street frontage façade.
