After ten years, a controversial city rezoning issue has been given the final approval tonight by the city council.
The Grand Junction City Council voted to change the zoning from residential to commercial on the south east corner of 12th and Patterson. This will make way for a new City Market. The plans to build a City Market were made back in 1999. A representative from City Market says that this is the first big hurtle and now it's back to the planning commission with site plans.
City Market says that if the plans are all approved, it could take another two years before the shopping center may break ground.
