Plans for the second phase of the redevelopment in downtown Kent were approved by the Kent Planning Commission tonight.
For the most part, the commission approved the plans without raising much concern.
However, questions were raised about parking for possible residential space in the project, and some question remains about a requirement in city code that calls for having a building stand along South DePeyster Street where plans show instead the plaza opens to the right of way.
"I think this looks great," commission member John Gargan said of the plans. "It’d be great to have some downtown residential condos. My only concern was that there will be sufficient parking just for those residents."
