Council Back to Work

Monday, August 21, 2017 @ 5:59 AM

Prince George, B.C. – It has been nearly a month since Council for the City of Prince George huddled for a regular meeting,  and the agenda for this  evening’s session is a busy one.

While much of the discussion will be focused on issues surrounding the proposed replacement of the Four Season’s Pool and  the  building of a new Fire Hall #1,  ( see previous story),  there are a number of other matters  to be tackled.

There are three public hearings  set for this evening,  including:

  • a request to rezone a property on Vance Road to  allow for a liquor store in the area to move its location,
  • a rezoning  request from the Regional District of Fraser fort George  to  make the  Foothills Landfill  conform to current use,  and
  • request to rezone a  property on Uplander to allow for the development of a duplex.

Council will also  look at the results of the formal petition  for a local area service  (LAS) in the Hart Highlands area  for  sewer connection.   The formal petition  for  phase four of the  installation did not receive the necessary  level of approval,  so  staff suggest conducting another formal petition  for  a small area of that neighbourhood  where  residents indicated support for such a project.     In order for an LAS to proceed,   the petition must receive  50% approval from  owners representing 50% of the  total assessed values of properties under consideration.




Maybe they can ask themselves why taxpayers are funding bylaw services that doesn’t enforce our bylaws.
