Council, land commission to consider growth plan

The Urban Growth Plan has must come before municipal council and the Agricultural Land Commission.

Now that the public hearing on Summerland’s proposed Urban Growth Plan has been completed, the plan must come before municipal council and the Agricultural Land Commission.

The plan, which would set the direction for future growth in Summerland, will be on the municipal council agenda for the March 10 meeting.

In order to pass, the bylaw requires the support of a majority of full council, or four of the seven council members.

Coun. Lloyd Christopherson and Coun. Bruce Hallquist, who both own land in the area affected, will be absent for this discussion.

Coun. Peter Waterman has voted against the resolution to receive the report and against the first reading of the bylaw.

If the second and third readings of the bylaw receive support of at least four members of council, the plan will then go on to the Agricultural Land Commission, since it involves changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve in Summerland.

The land commission can only respond to portions of the plan affecting agricultural land.
