Steinbach city council has also given its approval.
City council has given final approval to rezone the former Annie Loewen property along Old Tom Road for a housing development. It did so after the Manitoba municipal board ruled in favour of the plan. Neighbours Russ Fast and Ron Rudiak had objected. Fast wanted the property turned into an historic site while Rudiak expressed concern more wells might lead to contamination of the water supply. But the municipal board says the plan is consistent with land use in the surrounding area. The developer plans to put in a 16 unit housing development to be called Lion's Gate.
