Land Lease Project re-zoning application passes onto next step

GLCHT is very happy to report that today the Galiano Island Islands Trust Council has passed the re-zoning (bylaw amendment) application for the Land Lease Project onto the next step towards full approval, and agreed to the following:

1. That the Galiano Island Local Trust Committee direct staff to prepare draft bylaws that would amend the designation/zoning of the subject property from Rural Residential to an affordable housing zone/designation that allows a residential density not exceeding 15 units.

2. That the Galiano Island Local Trust Committee direct staff to report back with
recommendations concerning housing agreement and covenant restrictions,
potential developent permit area designation and a timeline.

This is a huge step forward for healthy housing on our island! Congratulations!
