Planning commissioners recommended rezoning the property from single family to planned unit development for office and attached residential with a 4-1 vote. Chairman Barry Moore cast the single no vote.

City council members are scheduled to make a final decision on Jan. 14.

There will be one-, two- or three-bedroom units. None of the buildings is to exceed five units. The rent will be between $1,500 and $2,300 a month.

Three or four office buildings are proposed to be built on the land fronting on Boulevard. The offices will total 18,000 square feet.

Planning commissioners also recommended amending the Edmond zoning plan to allow for this type of development.
