The initial lack of a decision one way or the other regarding a proposed mini-storage facility on Devine Street made possible another appeal by Nelmar Developments on Monday.
This time, council sided with the developer, who now expects to convert the now-closed St. Margaret's Catholic School to the new use.
While some councillors sided with city staff, who recommended against a zoning amendment for the development, in the end, the recorded vote was 4-3 to allow the change.
Councillors Jon McEachran, Dave Boushy, Andy Bruziewicz and Mayor Mike Bradley were in favour of the development.
Virtually all the neighbours had endorsed the development idea, which first came to council on Feb. 27. At that time, councillors were divided evenly on the issue, a "non-decision" that meant council had effectively not taken action.
