|Prince Rupert City Council gave the green light Monday for a zoning
change for this property on Portage Avenue
Members of Prince Rupert City Council hosted a Public Hearing on Monday related to a rezoning request for a property on Portage Avenue, the 6 PM session one which apparently provided for some feedback from the community.
Though to what extent that commentary may have been provided to the Council membership is not part of the record as of yet, with no video provided to the City's Video Archive for review of the hearing to provide for more clarity on what engagement was provided as part of the Public Hearing process.

From what we learned from their Regular session discussion, as the Council members reviewed the request to provide third reading for the bylaw to allow for a change in property designation from Residential to Light Industrial use for a property on Portage Avenue, they often made reference to the Public hearing from previous in the evening.
As for the comment provided to Council as part of the hearing, Councillor Adey noted of the feedback given to Council from two perspectives of the request.
"Just to acknowledge that we did get some public feedback in both directions, during the public hearing stage and I acknowledge the points of view expressed there.
I guess from my point of view though, I see this zoning bringing that particular portion of that block into alignment with the rest of that block.
I'm not sure that I can see any additional adverse effects from it, it seems to make sense to me so I'm in support of it"
