Rural residents will have several chances soon to have their say on plans for a new development at the south end of town.
A developer has applied to have the urban containment boundary extended south of Jubilee Parkway, to cover a proposed housing development. The regional district director for the nearby region said last week his constituents are worried about traffic impacts from 300 lots planned for the area.
Campbell River’s Director of Community Planning and Livability Andy Gaylor says the plans are still in early stages. He says the next step will be a neighbourhood public meeting, and after that, a public hearing will be necessary before the city will consider an amendment to the Official Community Plan.
The developer will need to put together detailed plans and a traffic capacity assessment still needs to be done for the city, and the public, to review at the meetings to come this summer.
