CROWN POINT | Mayor David Uran on Wednesday lifted a nearly 2-year-old ban on new multifamily housing in the city.

Uran said new rules in place for apartment dwellings led to his decision.

"This doesn't mean we will be flooded with petitions" for new multifamily development, Uran said.

Uran issued the moratorium in January 2011 just before a developer was scheduled to seek special zoning for a 250-unit complex at 107th Avenue and Broadway in the Beacon Hill area.

The moratorium was written into a resolution later that year by the City Council.

Rental housing regulations went on the books in June, codifying the annual registration and inspection of rental units and requiring landlords to furnish up-to-date tenant lists, among other requirements. 

About 15 registration applications have come into the Planning and Building Department ahead of a Dec. 28 deadline, Building Administrator Christopher Meyers said Wednesday.
