Neighbourhood information meeting for Malone Road proposal will be Nov. 15

Ladysmith residents can find out more about a proposed mixed-residential neighbourhood on Malone Road Thu., Nov. 15.

A meeting on Thu., Nov. 15 will reveal more details about a proposed mixed-residential neighbourhood on Malone Road.

Last week, Ladysmith council considered an application by Landeca Services Inc. to amend the town’s Official Community Plan (OCP) for a 7.72-hectare site on the western end of Malone Road and determined that the application should be referred to the Stz’uminus First Nation.

During the Nov. 5 meeting, council gave first and second reading to the OCP amendment bylaw and a zoning amendment bylaw. A public hearing will be scheduled, and a date will be advertised.

The requested amendments would allow a mixed residential neighbourhood at the end of Malone Road. A comprehensive development zone is proposed that would divide the property into three areas — single-family residential, single-family and two-family residential, and multi-family residential.

“The focus of the OCP amendment bylaw is the creation of a new development permit area that would apply to the subject properties and the focus of the development permit area is to address the form and character of the development, the exterior building design, energy conservation, site design and circulation, protection of the natural environment, landscape design and greenhouse gas emission reduction, and there’s also an element to the bylaw that would designate the riparian areas that would be dedicated to the town as parks and open space,” explained Felicity Adams, the town’s director of development services.

Landeca is holding a Neighbourhood Information Meeting Nov. 15 from 5-7 p.m. at the Frank Jameson Community Centre.
