News Update—January 2021

On January 7, following the official Public Hearing, our Trustees voted to amend and give Third Reading to Bylaws #306 (Official Community Plan) and #307 (Land-Use Bylaw). These bylaws, which will enable the rezoning for our project to go forward, have now been sent to the Islands Trust Executive Committee for approval as the next step in the rezoning process (see FAQ #2). The proposed Housing agreement Bylaw #308 is still being assessed by the Islands Trust lawyers.

GHS Board is very grateful for the large numbers of people in our community who took the time to voice or write their support of our proposal to the Trustees. Our funding application to BC Housing will be sent in time to meet their January 15 deadline and we hope to receive their decision in the Spring.

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.
