December 7, 2020Public Hearing Notice – OCP & Zoning Bylaw

****Update as of December 7th***

Tonight’s Public Hearing has been POSTPONED

The Province’s recent Ministerial Orders, Dec 2 & 4th, require local governments, including the District of Vanderhoof, to restrict public members from attending Council meetings and public hearings. As the Official Community Plan and the District’s Zoning Bylaws are the main guiding documents for our community and in interest of fair process, the District will be postponing tonight’s public hearing until further notice.

The public is hereby notified that a Public Hearing will be held on Monday December 07, 2020 from 4:30pm – 6:30pm in the Municipal Council Chambers located at 160 Connaught Street as the District of Vanderhoof intends to consider new Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw. The proposed District of Vanderhoof Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1229, 2020 is to designate the long-term vision of the District of Vanderhoof. The proposed District of Vanderhoof Zoning Bylaw No. 1230, 2020 is to regulate the use of lands within the District of Vanderhoof municipal boundary.
