With both Councillor Wade Niesh and Barry Cunningham providing for the bulk of the discussion on what to do about an increasing amount of use in the community.
As we outlined on Thursday, the container issue became part of the conversation on zoning themes related to the discussion on the new Official Community plan.
Wth Councillor Cunningham leading off the discussion seeking clarification from the city's contract planner Rob Buchan on the use of containers in the community, a topic that led off a wide ranging overview from the council membership.
Mr. Buchan, who has been working on the OCP work for much of the last year observed that they had decided to limit the use of the containers to those areas designated as M2, M3 and M6 zones a solution that took into consideration concerns over locating the containers too close to residential areas.
The topic of shipping containers was also one of Councillor Wade Niesh's concerns, who noted that they had previously discussed the topic back in the days when the city had Zeno Krekic on staff as the city planner.
