Busy Night Ahead for Prince George Council

Monday, October 17, 2016 @ 5:58 AM

Prince George, B.C. – It has been nearly a month since Prince George City Council held a public meeting and that means tonight’s session  is packed with items.

Two long awaited issues  will be on the  agenda this evening,   the proposed  smoking and vaping bylaw  and the  proposal  for   a new entrance  for the  Prince George Public Library. ( see separate stories on these two issues)

In addition to those  two major issues,   Council will get a first look at a rezoning application  for  95.8 hectares of land  along Tyner Boulevard for the development of a mixed use neighbourhood including  possible commercial  development.

Council will  hear from  two delegations,  the Railway and Forestry Museum as well as the Northbreast Passage  Dragon Boat team.  Later in the evening the Regional District will also make a presentation to Council, bringing  City reps up to date on the operations at the Foothills Landfill.

There are two public hearings on the agenda for tonight.  One calls for a change to the soil removal bylaw for the gravel pit on Foothills Boulevard, the other  requests  a change to allow for a community care facility for up to 12 people on Punchaw crescent.


Maybe someone on council can get the roads to the Greenway trails parking lot near the uni graded. The parking lot is heavily used by those using the trails but the road is ignored for some reason.

    Are those city streets?
