Bowen Island Municipality Land Use Bylaw No. 57, 2002,
Amendment Bylaw No. 422, 2016 
(Lot 3 Rezoning) 

Read the minutes of the Public Hearing held Wednesday, November 30, 2016.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bowen Island Council is considering changes to the Official Community Plan (OCP) and the Land Use Bylaw with respect to zoning of Lot 3 of the Community Lands. This is a 1.6 hectare (4 acre) parcel located on Miller Road and Bowen Island Trunk Road as shown on the attached map.

Proposed Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 425, 2016 would change the designation of the northern portion of Lot 3, which is currently designated “Village Residential.” Council is proposing adding “Institutional” to the Land Use Designation, to enable the future construction of the relocated Fire Hall and new Emergency Operations Centre.

Proposed Land Use Bylaw No. 422, 2016 would rezone the northern portion of the Lot “Island Civic,” to enable future construction of the relocated Fire Hall and new Emergency Operations Centre, and rezone the remainder “Village Commercial 1” to enable a proposed parking area in the centre of the lot, and future commercial or mixed use development.

MORE INFORMATION AT MUNICIPAL HALL:
Starting Thursday, November 10th, 2016, the proposed bylaw and background material may be viewed at Municipal Hall between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday (excluding statutory holidays) or on the page below.
