ST. JOSEPH — A St. Joseph couple is asking the city to consider a zoning ordinance change that would allow residential use on the first floor of buildings in an area zoned Commercial Office.

Jack Sanderson told the St. Joseph City Commission this week that there is a need for more residential housing in the area, while demand is slim for office space located within a converted residence. He said he believes amending the zoning ordinance would address both problems.
