Judging from last week’s city council discussion, it wasn’t surprising that a development permit application for an addictions centre at 21 River St. W. was denied at Monday’s city council meeting.

The only puzzling part of Monday’s public hearing and appeal was that even with the prospect of denial looming, there was no appeal from the project’s proponent, Steve Kember.

With zero discussion or debate from city council on Monday, the development permit was swiftly rejected.

Similar to Alcoholics Anonymous, 21 River St. W. would have hosted an Addicts Victorious program if approved -- a Christian-based addictions organization.

As council clarified at last week’s executive committee meeting, the city’s elected officials have no qualms with the programming itself; just the location.

The city’s elected officials have plans for the city’s riverfront, which they’re in the process of hashing out.

Organizations: Alcoholics Anonymous

Geographic location: 21 River St.
