Saanich Council Hosts EDPA Town Hall
Thursday, November 12th at 7:00 PM
The District of Saanich Council is hosting an Environmental Development Permit Area (EDPA) Town Hall Meeting. This is an opportunity for Residents and other Stakeholders to provide feedback to Council on the current EDPA Bylaw. The Town Hall will be held at the Garth Homer Centre at 813 Darwin Avenue, next to the Saanich Municipal Hall.
After extensive public consultation, the Environmental Development Permit Area Bylaw was adopted by Saanich Council on March 12, 2012, to protect biodiversity, mitigate development impacts and restore degraded ecosystems.
Residents unable to attend the Town Hall Meeting can visit the EDPA Virtual Open House at www.saanich.ca/edpa to read factsheets, learn more about the EDPA Guidelines, and access feedback forms. Feedback forms are also available at Saanich Recreation Centres, and the Municipal Hall. All feedback forms must be submitted to Saanich by November 27, 2015 to be included in the EDPA review process.
Property owners needing further information about the EDPA can contact Environmental Services staff at 250-475-5471.
