The subject property is in conformance with the suitability criteria and staff have not identified any concerns that relate to policies specific to this application. Amendment Bylaw 1497-2016 recieved first reading by the SLRD Board and the referral period is complete.

The SLRD Board resolved to give second reading of Amendment Bylaw 1497-2016 at its regular Board meeting on March 15, 2017. A Public Hearing will take place on Wednesday April 12, 2017 at 7pm in the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Board Room, 1350 Aster St, Pemberton, BC.
