Campbell River City Council has appointed two new members to fill openings on the Board of Variance.
Kelly Flynn and Roger Richer join the Board of Variance for their first term.
The Board of Variance is an independent panel of five members appointed to consider minor variances from the City’s Zoning Bylaw. Appeals to the Board are generally made by homeowners or developers when compliance with a minor aspect of Zoning Bylaw (such as a side yard setback) would cause “hardship” to the applicant. The Board usually visits a site, and then hears representations from an applicant and their neighbours before making a decision.
“The Board of Variance provides an important role to uphold community values as our neighbourhoods grow and change,” says Mayor Andy Adams. “These new volunteers join a dedicated group and bring experience in both local government and on other boards of variance. This is another example of the calibre of people who are choosing to call Campbell River home, and we’re fortunate they’re stepping forward to offer their expertise.”
