News Update—March 2021

In mid-January, Islands Trust (IT) Executive Committee approved the proposed Bylaws #306 (Official Community Plan) and #307 (Land Use Bylaw). Bylaw #306 is now awaiting approval by the Minister of Municipal Affairs, Josie Osborne.

Following review by IT lawyers, IT staff amended draft Bylaw #308 (Housing Agreement), and their draft was reviewed and accepted by GHS Board in February. Shortly before the March 4 meeting at which LTC was to discuss it for possible 3rd and 4th reading, Snuneymuxw First Nation (SFN) requested more time to review the draft. As a result, LTC will not further discuss the Housing Agreement until they receive SFN’s comments.

On January 15, GHS submitted to BC Housing our application for funding. BC Housing has told us it will make its funding decision by early April.

All technical documents relating to our proposal, including reports relating to water supply in the neighbourhood, may be found on the Islands Trust Gabriola Applications webpage.
