First reading of a rezoning bylaw was passed at Medicine Hat City Council but not without some dissension.

The bylaw was introduced to change a parcel of city owned land at 352 Primrose Drive from open space designation to medium density residential.

Councillor Brian Varga says residents wanting to speak for or against the rezoning will have a chance next month

Varga says this is the process that must be followed and notes nothing will be rezoned until after the public hearing December 17
