Public Hearing and further consideration of India Avenue Housing proposal by Council this evening

The final steps towards a possible redevelopment of the old Baptist Church on India Avenue into housing units takes place this evening at Prince Rupert City Council.

The first item of consideration on the night will be the Public Hearing into the proposed development, where those residents who may have comments or may be affected by the project can offer their comments to Council members.

You can learn more about that process from the Agenda for the Public Hearing which starts at 7 PM in Council Chambers.

Following the Public Hearing, Council will then consider three Bylaw issues related to the proposed development, the Zoning Application, the Application for a Variance Permit and the Application for the Development permit for a Multi-Family Development.

Council will make note of the public comment from the Public Hearing as part of their consideration of the Bylaw items.  Sometimes towards the end of this evening's session we will learn if Council approves of the development or if there are any issues that may give them cause to delay approval of the proposed development.

You can review the full overview of the Bylaw issues from the Council agenda for tonight here.

More background on the India Avenue proposal can be found from our Housing archive page.
