The Kitimat Hamlet returned to Council at the Committee of the Whole Meeting on Monday, May 28th. Dr. Howard Mills was not in attendance.
Councillor Mario Feldhoff explained Mills and his contractor had spoken to the Advisory Planning Commission Last week. He asked City Planner Gwen Sewell to explain what had happened.
“The have recognized that certainly, the proposal from two years ago is certainly the way to move, and that is to zone the whole property as rural resort. It gives some flexibility to zoning. They also want to see some additional uses in that location,” said Sewell.
She explained the key component is to nail down the definitions and there are some missing. They want to make sure there is parallel language between the BC Liquor Control Licensing act and the definitions they are using in the municipal code.
Sewell stated the Mills were pleased with the discussions which are taking place. There was one issue which remains outstanding. The drawings make this area out to be a subdivision which it is not. It needs to go through further review and it’s lay out does not comply with regulations.
A bylaw will be written and go to public hearing. The question was called and carried.
