NOTICE OF INTENT TO AMEND ZONING BYLAW

Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 4285 (Applicable to Electoral Area E - Cowichan Station/Sahtlam/Glenora)

Notice is hereby given that the CVRD Board will consider reading a third time and adopting the above noted Amendment Bylaw at the regular Board meeting of November 27, 2019.

As per Section 464(2) of the Local Government Act, the Cowichan Valley Regional District Board of Directors, having reviewed the above noted Bylaw and finding it to be consistent with the policies of the Electoral Area E – Cowichan Station/Sahtlam/Glenora Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1490, has waived the Public Hearing and directed that this Public Notice occur in its place.  Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 4285 received First and Second Readings at the August 14, 2019, Board meeting.

Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 4285 would amend Electoral Area E – Cowichan Station/Sahtlam/Glenora Zoning Bylaw No. 1840 by rezoning a portion of the parcel from I-2 (Heavy Industrial) to a new A-7 (Agricultural Seven) Zone. This rezoning will remove industrial land use potential from the subject property and create consistency between the Zoning Bylaw and the Official Community Plan designation, which is Agriculture.
