NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING

PROPOSED MILL BAY BOAT LAUNCH; AND

OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN AMENDMENT BYLAW No. 3883 and

ZONING AMENDMENT BYLAW No. 3884

Applicable to Electoral Area A – Mill Bay/Malahat

A public meeting will be held as follows to consider the proposed Mill Bay Boat Launch and the above-noted amendment bylaws:

DATE: Wednesday, February 18, 2015 TIME: 7:00 PM

PLACE: Kwunew Kwasun Cultural Resource Centre, Kwunew Kwasun Lane, Malahat, BC

As part of the Mill Bay Marina redevelopment, a commitment was made to provide an improved boat launch facility in the community. An opportunity has recently arisen to have this proposed boat launch project relocated from the bottom of Handy Road to the Malahat Nation Reserve, in association with a project the Malahat Nation are developing. The area where the boat launch and other facilities would be installed (see map below) would be rezoned for this use by Amendment Bylaw 3884, and a complementary amendment to the South Cowichan Official Community Plan would also be required. Zoning Amendment Bylaw 3884 would also rezone the site of the existing Mill Bay Boat Launch at the end of Handy Road, to the same W-6 Zone as the water surface fronting the Malahat Reserve.

The purpose of the meeting is to present the proposed development plan and related bylaws to the community for information. Representatitives of the CVRD and the Malahat Nation will be present to explain the details of the proposal, to receive comments and to answer any questions.

At the public meeting, CVRD staff and the applicant will explain the proposal. The CVRD will then facilitate a question and answer session, and persons who deem their interests to be affected by this proposal are invited to provide comments. Written submissions may be submitted before, during, or up to one week following the meeting by:
