A new Chinese therapeutic massage clinic may soon open in a downtown Red Deer neighbourhood.
On Monday, Red Deer city council approved a rezoning of a land use bylaw amendment that will allow the new health and medical services business at 4922 55th St. as a discretionary use.
Concerns over safety, parking and traffic flow were raised during the public hearing.
Council amended the bylaw to restrict the hours of operation from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
In addition to the two residential off-street parking stalls, the business must provide a minimum of two off-street parking stalls for the exclusive and unrestricted use of the business during the hours of operation.
