Masonic Hall rezoning subject of Public Hearing tonight

Prince Rupert's Masonic Hall
on Sixth Avenue East
Those living in the area of the Masonic Hall have an opportunity this evening to share their thoughts on a proposed rezoning initiative for the Hall, a change that will allow for a portion of the building to be turned into storage for a local furniture store in the city.

The prospect of moving forward with the rezoning will be part of the discussion from this evening's Public Hearing, to be held prior to the evening's Regular Council session on the evening.

During the hearing, Council members and those in the public gallery will hear a short overview of the zoning change request and then, should they have any comments the members of the public will have an opportunity to make them known to City Council.

You can review some of the notes on tonight's Public Hearing from the Hearing agenda notes here.

proposed zoning changes at the

Included in that package is a report from the City Planner Zeno Krekic, who outlines some of the points under consideration as far as changing the zoning to allow for storage in the community service club's 6th Avenue East building.

Heading into this evening's Hearing, The city has received no inquiries related to the zoning issue over the counter at City Hall and has received six written communications offering the thoughts of residents related to the possible zoning change.

The topic of the rezoning will then become part of the evening's Council session, with Council set to offer up their thoughts of whether to move forward with the process.

The path ahead for the evening can be found from tonight's Agenda PackagePages 40 - 43 )
