Zoning changes on deck at city hall are ready for review

‘Let’s Talk Zoning’ session for the public is Tuesday, February 11, at Evergreen Hall

Zoning is going to be the talk of town next month.

“We’re in the process of updating our Zoning Bylaw and we want to hear from you!” according to a City of Chilliwack notice about the review process.

But wait. What is zoning exactly? Typically a zoning bylaw maps out the municipal rules of how land is used; where buildings, structures and parking can be located; and the size of buildings, structures and lots.

Join city staff, consultants, and citizens on February 11 at Evergreen Hall for an Open House to talk about how the zoning bylaw might change.

“The City is currently re-writing Chilliwack’s Zoning Bylaw and we’re ready to share the recommendations for a new set of rules to help implement the City’s vision as laid out within the 2040 Official Community Plan.”

‘Let’s Talk Zoning’ is Tuesday, February 11, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Evergreen Hall, 9291 Corbould Street.

The presentation is at 6:45 p.m.
