City considers allowing funeral home to share mall with restaurant

  • Print

City council’s appeals committee is bracing to hear arguments in favour of a funeral home that wants to set up shop in the same Logan Avenue stripmall as a restaurant.

On July 4, the city’s Board of Adjustment rejected Mike Knysh’s application to grant a conditional use to a funeral home at 1111 Logan Ave., a stripmall at the intersection with McPhillips Street.

A Chinese buffet occupies about half the leasable space in the stripmall.

"A funeral home is a necessary community service, which every one of us will some day need," Knysh writes in an appeal letter that also expresses concern a member of the Board of Adjustment made reference to "cultural issues" pertaining to his application.

An appeal that will be heard by Couns. Paula Havixbeck (Charleswood), Ross Eadie (Mynarski), Harvey Smith (Daniel McIntyre) and Thomas Steen (Elmwood) at a public hearing on Thursday, Sept. 20.
