Rezoning won’t pass until more information given to Port Hardy council

Port Hardy council had the option to pass final reading on a bylaw amendment that would have rezoned a section of land at 8950 Granville Street from duplex residential to multiple unit residential, but ultimately chose not to do so just yet.

The bylaw amendment passed first reading on June 13, then there was a public hearing held July 6 before it went on to pass second and third reading on Aug. 8.

The final reading for adoption was on council’s Sept. 12 meeting agenda, but Ross Blackwell, director of corporate services, warned council to “not move final reading on this,” noting it should stay as a pending bylaw until there’s more information provided from the applicant.

“So it will be moved into pending bylaws for the time being,” confirmed Mayor Pat Corbett-Labatt, adding later in a phone interview with the Gazette that the bylaw amendment will stay pending until council receives more details from the proponents about what they’re planning to do with the land.
