A new, two-story triplex with three multi-room units is planned to be built on a vacant lot in downtown Sonora, with the city Planning Commission unanimously approving an exception to setback requirements for the project at a public meeting Monday night.

The developer behind the project is Bill Canning, a former Sonora city council member from 2005 to 2016, who served as mayor for two of those years. He owns the property at 391 S. Stewart St. where the approved triplex will be located.
