Offer feedback on Eastern Hillsides plan

An open house is set for Dec. 1 to gather input on the draft plan for the Eastern Hillsides of Chilliwack.

City of Chilliwack is looking for feedback on its Eastern Hillsides Comprehensive Area Plan.

A second open house is slated for Dec. 1 to gather input on the draft plan before the OCP amendment to adopt the plan comes up in early 2012.

The Hillsides Area Plan Open House is at Evergreen Hall on Thursday, December 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The earlier plan from 1994, the Eastern Hillsides Comprehensive Development Plan, called for a mix of residential, commercial, and institutional development in the Eastern Hillsides Area as a means of addressing long-term growth needs in the city.

But since then significant changes have come to the fore “to alter the original vision of the plan, with respect to increased environmental, geotechnical, and servicing requirements/costs, and the introduction of new hillside development guidelines in 2008,” according to city officials.

The plan is available in video format as well as a PDF document online at www.chilliwack.com.
