Port Hardy tables zoning bylaw review

The District of Port Hardy will host a workshop to allow local input.

PORT HARDY— The District of Port Hardy will host a “workshop week” to allow the community to have its input to new zoning bylaws.

In a release, the District explained that the zoning bylaw has been amended several times but is in need of a comprehensive review. To help accomplish this, the District has hired Urban Systems Ltd., a consulting firm specialized in civil engineering and planning, to lead the project.

The intent is to adopt a user-friendly, model bylaw based on best practices that will illustrate improvement, innovation and enhancement of existing land-use policies, while supporting development regulations that are aligned with Port Hardy’s newly crafted Official Community Plan.

The workshop week will begin Oct. 22 following an initial review of the existing bylaw, and culminate in an open house Oct. 25.

The bylaw will then be prepared and go before Council for approval, with the entire process expected to be completed by the end of the year.

For more info or to get involved, call or email Gloria Le Gal, director of corporate services, at 250-949-6665 or glegal@porthardy.ca.
