Artisan Village reconsidered

A public open house will be held Tuesday, Sept. 15, from 4 to 8 p.m.

A public open house will be held Tuesday, Sept. 15, from 4 to 8 p.m., providing information about a revised development plan for the Chemainus Artisan Village.

The 33.5 acre site was approved for a 428 unit mixed commercial and residential project in January 2011.

Then the project was going to include a ‘mixed-use neighbourhood’ of family housing, commercial spaces and senior housing – 10 per cent of the housing units were to be for affordable housing.

The open house will take place at the Chemainus Senior’s Centre, 9824 Willow Street. It will present information “on a proposed Official Community Plan amendment and a Zoning Bylaw amendment.”

“The proposal is to revise the existing Chemainus Artisan Village Comprehensive Development Plan and the Comprehensive Development Zone,” says a notice about the open house.
