|The Lester Centre is the host for tonight's Public Hearing and|
Prince Rupert City Council session, with a proposed land
rezoning issue perhaps the centre stage item for the night
Tonight could make for one of the pivotal moments of their term of office for this current collection of Prince Rupert City Council members, as the topic of a proposed rezoning of land on 11th Avenue East for use as an apartment building makes its way to a Public Hearing starting at 6 PM.
Such could be the interest in the process tonight, that City Council acted on a suggestion from Councillor Nick Adey in July to move the hearing from City Hall to the larger venue of the Lester Centre, that in anticipation that topic could be one that generates much interest among city residents.
The focus for the night will be a decision towards moving the process forward on a Zoning Amendment as to whether to rezone land currently listed as residential to be shifted towards use of a multi unit complex led by the Lax Kw'alaams WAAP Housing Society to host 70 affordable living units, ten of them dedicated towards the use of Elders/Seniors.
