The Bear Pit overflowed with a turnout of approximately 70 people in attendance for the Public Hearing on Zoning
Bylaw No.66. Various concerns were raised and noted.
The main point of discussion related to the Principal Uses of the RM-1 Zone where an unintended consequence had
been discovered which caused concern among those living in the RM-1 Zone.
This oversight was recognized prior to the meeting and had been brought forward to Regional Council as a proposed
amendment to the draft bylaw. The amendment would ensure that the RM-1 Zone continues to allow the construction of
multiple dwellings, two family attached dwellings and single family attached dwellings in any form of
ownership. i.e. Fee simple or Bare land strata.
As a response to the proposed amendment and other concerns raised at the Public Hearing, Regional Council rescinded
2nd Reading of Zoning Bylaw No.66. Regional Council will consider a list of proposed amendments as a result
of comments made at the Public Hearing and incorporate any changes into the bylaw for a new 2nd reading to be
followed by a new public hearing.
