FARGO, N.D. (AP) - City commissioners in Fargo have put off voting on zoning changes for two proposed apartment complexes that could house hundreds of students near the North Dakota State University campus.

KFGO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1S5uWvv ) the Fargo Planning Commission this week deferred decisions on the two apartment complexes following concerns from residents.

One of the proposed apartments is a 72-unit complex and the other could provide housing for more than 700 students.

Jim Lashkowitz lives in the Roosevelt neighborhood near one of the proposed sites.

Lashkowitz told commissioners one of Fargo’s biggest problems is a lack of single family housing. He says the proposal would remove that in favor of high-density housing.

Project backers need the zoning change to proceed. They say they’re working to mitigate the concerns of residents.
