A Salem developer is seeking a zone change for two parcels on Oak Street S.E. so he can construct an apartment building.

The Albany Planning Commission will hear the request when it meets at 7:15 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, in the city council chambers at city hall, 333 Broadalbin St. S.W.

The petition will go to the city council if approved or denied at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6 at city hall. The panel must approve all zone changes.

Hans Thygeson for Oak Street Apartments LLC is requesting property in the vicinity of 1605 Oak St. S.E. be converted from residential medium density to residential medium density attached, according to paperwork filed with the city.

Thygeson wants to build a 24-unit apartment complex on the undeveloped site.

Property to the north is zoned residential medium density, to the south is residential medium density attached, to the east is open space and to the west is residential single family.

The abutting parcel to the north is an undeveloped lot about 34,400 square feet in size; however a church with a parking lot is located to the north.

Periwinkle Creek and a paved city bike path are on the east.

Thygeson owns the property that lies to the south of the zone change proposal. That site is already zoned residential attached and is being developed with multi-family residential structures approved under a land-use process last May.

To the west across Oak Street are mainly single-story duplexes with carports and single-family homes.

The city has notified by mail property owners within 300 feet of the requested zone change.
