Old Fort St. John fire hall rezoned, sold

The old Fort St. John fire hall has been rezoned and sold to new owners.

City council voted Monday to rezone the property from institutional to general commercial. The rezoning was part of a deal to sell the city property at 9407 Avenue for $625,000 to 1117731 BC Ltd.

The Prince George-based company plans to repurpose the old hall into mixed-use space, with commercial business on the ground floor, and residential housing above.

The city hired Ron Rodgers of NorthEast BC Realty to broker the sale of the surplus building and land, who placed a sold sign on the building on Tuesday. The property had been listed for $758,000, and was later dropped to $689,000. 

It's the first property sold under the city's new sale of strategic lands policy.

The policy was adopted in summer 2017 to sell surplus municipal lands under specific planning guidelines based on what the city has identified is the best use of the property.
