Transit Service Expansion Before Council

Monday, February 6, 2017 @ 5:59 AM

Prince George, B.C.- When  Council for the  City of Prince George meets this evening for its regular meeting,   the plan for  expanded transit will be on  the table.

A report to Council  outlines expansion of service   to statutory holidays,  and  improved service on the  weekends.

Also  on the agenda for Council’s consideration this evening is a rezoning of a portion of the property  which is home to  Studio 2880.   The rezoning  calls for a section of the rear of  that property  to  be rezoned to allow for the construction  of as  many as 40  affordable housing units.  the application  also calls for the entire  property to be designated as  Neighbourhood Corridor The changes would have no impact on the existing uses  in the buildings which  front  15th Avenue.

Residents living near North College Park  have submitted a petition to Council  to try  and sway  the City from allowing any  part of  that park to be  redeveloped  for seniors housing.  The petition  has more than 900 signatures  and  calls on  Council to  deny any  effort to have  part of the park sold  for development.   Recently a developer held an open house to talk with interested neighbours about  the possible development which would see about  a dozen  homes built  on  a portion of the park adjacent to Eton Avenue.    The developer has not yet applied  for any rezoning of that portion of property.  The North College  Park  delegation  plans to make a presentation to Council  in early March.



Good location to put some new low income housing! Clean up the area around Studio 2880.
