|A Public Hearing on the rezoning of Land from Residential|
to Commercial towards a proposed Hotel development
will take place on Monday evening
(item above from previous City of PR Agenda)
A project which was first proposed prior to the adoption of the new Official Community Plan has now made it as far as a Public Hearing, with the City of Prince Rupert announcing that the hearing for the Park Avenue Modular Hotel development will take place at 6PM on Monday July 26th.
If the zoning change from residential to commercial is granted, the project would see a 60 unit complex constructed along Park Avenue adjacent to the Park Avenue Store, the process sent to Public hearing on June 28th with a covenant in place towards the development.

At the time, some of the members of Council noted how despite having zoned the area for residential as part of their desire to steer commercial development to the downtown area, they nonetheless felt that their actions to allow for the development made for a good balance on land use.
