— City council members have approved rezoning 3.53 acres near 15th Street and Bryant Avenue for a new building to house Living Well at Spring Creek, a center for creating health awareness for families.

The office park will have three buildings on the north side of 15th Street, a quarter mile west of Bryant Avenue, including a 1,500-square-foot cafe that will be part of Dr. Michele Menzel's Energetic Wellness program.

Menzel, a natural health practitioner, now operates her business near Broadway and Rankin Street.

The 4-1 vote changed the zoning from D-O to D-1 to allow for the cafe or restaurant.

Council member Elizabeth Waner voted against the project as filed by Fisource Inc.

A 400-square-foot area also would be reserved for the sale of health supplements and food products.

Waner was concerned about the size of the property that backs up to the floodplain and the size of the project.
