City Council Preview, Monday, July 25, 2016
Council features a Public Hearing into plans to rezone a parcel of land off of Prince Rupert Boulevard in the Drake Crescent area, offering those with comments or concerns related to the proposed development an opportunity to offer up their thoughts in public forum.
You can review the Agenda for the Public Hearing here.
The public engagement opportunity continues on with the monthly Committee of the Whole Session, where residents can bring comments, or concerns to the attention of City Council members.
The Agenda for the Committee of the Whole session can be examined here.
Once those two public input opportunities are finished Council will turn its attention to the Regular Council Session Agenda which features a number of reports for review, including a a look at the June Financial Variance numbers and a number of Development variance requests.
The remainder of the evening is left to consider three bylaw recommendations, ranging from zoning issues for that land at Drake Crescent and Prince Rupert Boulevard, a plan to place regulations on the distance between Liquor Retail Establishments and the results of an Alternative Approval Process for land on Graham Avenue, as well as a plan to sell a parcel of it to the Bryton Group.
The full review of the evening ahead can be reviewed here from the Agenda for the Regular Council session for June 27th.
Council will also host a session closed to the public, the 5 PM session has been called to address items related to:
