Busy Night Ahead for Prince George Council
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.
