Apr 08 - Apr 23 2019

Smithers Town Council will consider Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment and Rezoning application R19-02 for a portion of Town-owned property located at 1621 Main Street, legally described as Lots 7-19, and a portion of Lots 23-30, Block 140, Range 5, District Lot 865, Plan PRP1054, on Tuesday, April, 23rd, 2019, beginning at 6:30 pm in Council Chambers of the Town Hall, 1027 Aldous Street, Smithers, BC.

The property, also known as the LB Warner Centre, is located northeast of the Main Street-Tenth Avenue intersection, and houses the Bulkley Valley Gymnastics Club and the former Ministry of Highways works yard. Approval of this application would enable potential developers to build up to 36 dwelling units on the west 1.5-acre portion of the property (the “subject property”), but not including the Gymnastics Club building & area (see the proposed bylaw maps).

Town Council is proposing to adopt:

  • Bylaw 1860 to change the land use designation of the subject property from Civic/Community Use to Mixed Residential, and to add the same area to the Multi- Family Residential Form and Character Development Permit Area.
  • Bylaw 1861 to rezone the subject property from P-2 Public Use Two to R-3 Medium Density Residential.

Anyone who believes they will be affected by the proposed bylaws is invited to submit written comments to Council prior to the meeting, and to attend the meeting. Written submissions must be received by 11:00 am on April 23rd to be included on the agenda.

The proposed bylaws and relevant background information can be viewed below or at the Town Office, Monday through Friday (except holidays) 8:30 a to 4:30pm.
