Too High, Too Big, Wrong Zone-But Project Will Move to Public Hearing
Prince George, B.C. – An application to change the Official Community Plan and rezoning for a piece of property off O’Grady will move forward to a public hearing.
Now developers would like to use the property for the construction of two 6 storey wood frame apartment buildings.
Administration argues the proposed buildings would be too high for the neighbourhood, and the whole proposal is not consistent with the neighbourhood.
But, Councillors say they wanted to hear more information from the developer and from residents of the neighbourhood. So it has moved towards the next stage in the process which is third reading at which time there is a public hearing.
In order for the extra information, such as a traffic impact study, to be ready for presentation at a public hearing, it would be mid August before that public hearing could take place.
