A new zoning bylaw is in the works at the District of West Kelowna and council is seeking input regarding changes that potentially affect all properties in the municipality.

Before council considers adoption of the new zoning bylaw and related amendments to the Official Community Plan, property owners and residents have an opportunity to provide feedback through a public hearing Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at Municipal Hall, 2760 Cameron Road.

Copies of the new zoning bylaw and the amended Official Community Plan may be reviewed at Municipal Hall, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday until Nov. 26. Information is also available at districtofwestkelowna.ca in a Notice of Public Hearing listed under Events and Meetings.

Those who want to provide input to council must make submissions to the attention of the city clerk before 4 p.m. on Nov. 25:

– In Person at Municipal Hall

– By mail to Municipal Hall, 2760 Cameron Road, West Kelowna, BC, V1Z 2T6

– By fax to 778-797-1001

– By e-mail to info@districtofwestkelowna.ca.

Any correspondence or written submissions received after the deadline will not be circulated to council; however, late submissions may be presented in person at the public hearing.

All submissions, including names of authors, will become public record as part of the hearing process. Authors should not include their phone number or e-mail address in their submissions, should they wish that information be kept private.

Council can’t receive any further submissions regarding these bylaws after the public hearing has concluded.

Council is expected to consider adoption of the new zoning bylaw and amendments to the Official Community Plan in early 2014.
