The lengthy zoning process that proponents of a supportive housing residence on the east side of the city have been navigating for a number of months now, could finally come to a conclusion tonight.

That as the 333 Trinity House proposal goes to Public Hearing at the start of tonight's Prince Rupert Council Session, with one final look at the plans for an east side supportive housing residence.

As part of the process, the City Planner will provide a report on the proposed zoning amendment, including a look at the written contributions received by the City.

Those correspondences include comments from those that are in support of the supportive housing residence, as well as those who have concerns about it's location.

Community residents in the public gallery will then be able to offer their own commentary related to the zoning amendment, with a public comment period to follow the report.

Council members will then consider the the zoning change request later in the Regular Council session.

The Public Notice  from last week outlines how the process for tonight's Public Hearing will take place.

At the Public Hearing all persons who deem themselves affected by the proposed Bylaw shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the Bylaw. 

If you cannot attend the Public Hearing, all written submissions (mailed, or electronic) must be received by the City Planner by no later than 12:00 Noon on March 26, 2018. Please mail to City of Prince Rupert, 424 3rd Avenue West Prince Rupert, B.C. V8J 1L7 or email to
