Dickinson Planning and Zoning Commission members unanimously approved a rezone in Prairie Hills Subdivision, which allows apartments in an area once zoned for duplexes at a meeting Wednesday at City Hall.

City Commission members give final approval of all requests.

Larry Kostelecky requested that the six-acre property described as Prairie Hills fourth subdivision be changed from residential medium density to high density.

"What he's doing fits very well into what the rest of the area looks like," said City Engineer Shawn Soehren.

Kostelecky plans to construct multi-family units on the property.

One acre of the property is in a flood plain.

Jerry Krieg, of Kadrmas Lee & Jackson and Soehren both said if Kostelecky would want to build on the flood plain he would have to check city and state laws and suggested he also look into insurance.

Other business discussed at the meeting:

r Commissioners approved a final plat for the Shetler Subdivision which is about two miles south of Dickinson.
