It could be a busy evening on March 15 in the District of 100 Mile House council chambers, as there will be a public hearing on four zoning amendment bylaws, starting at 6 p.m.
Members of the public will be able to give input on the proposed amendments in writing before the public hearing or at the council chambers. (See the ad on page B7.)
• Bylaw 1291: The Lakewood Inn wants permission to expand its retail Cold Beer and Wine Store.
• Bylaw 1292: Sheridan Manor Apartments wants to increase the permitted density allowed for the facility. Currently, there are are 33 strata apartment units in the building, but the highest density in the District’s Zoning Bylaw only allows 19 units.
• Bylaw 1293: Bridge Creek Estate is applying to rezone the area at the southwest corner of Highway 97 and Exeter Station Road from Agricultural Zone (A-1) to Small Holding Zone (A-2). The rezoning is being requested to accommodate a future subdivision by enabling this portion of land to be removed from the Agricultural Land Reserve.
The subject land contains Well #4. Currently, the well site and access is protected by a Statutory Right of Way, which is unaffected by a zoning amendment.
• Bylaw 1294: The subject property is the former Mavin Plumbing location on Airport Road. The application is to allow general retail uses.
At this meeting, members of the public will be able to have input on the new Official Community Plan Bylaw, as well as the new Zoning Bylaw. These new bylaws will modernize and replace the old, outdated bylaws.
