Have Your Say

We want to hear from you!

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about some of the projects we are currently working on and for sharing your views with the City of Victoria.

Current Projects

Growing in the City

Did you plant more kale than you know what do to with? Are your bees producing so much honey that you are thinking of packaging and selling it? The City is considering bylaw changes that would allow you to grow and sell a range of food anywhere in the city, while limiting negative impacts to your neighbours.

Review the proposed changes and share your thoughts by August 22.  View project

Regulating Medical Marijuana-related Businesses

The City of Victoria is exploring potential regulations for the operation of medical marijuana-related businesses. The purpose of the regulations is to reduce community impacts of these businesses, while maintaining access to medical marijuana.  

On July 28, 2016, staff presented several bylaws to Council that would regulate the business licence and land use aspects of marijuana-related businesses. The City is now seeking additional feedback on several of the proposed regulations. View Project

Planning for the future of Crystal Pool

The Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre has been helping the community stay active for 45 years. Now it's time to get it in better shape! We are asking for input on the community's aquatic and recreational programming needs to help inform whether to renovate or replace the facility. View project

David Foster Harbour Pathway Improvements

Over the next year we are making improvements to the Harbour Pathway. We will focus on making connections, improving accessibility and creating interesting and fun public spaces along the way. View project

Topaz Park Improvements

This year we are planning improvements to Topaz Park as we replace the unsafe tennis courts that have been closed for the past five years, with a new space for the community to enjoy. View project

Name this green!

Begbie Green was redesigned in 2015 based on the community's feedback. To celebrate the rejuvenation of this green space, we are asking for your help to "name this green!" View project

Sidewalk Cafes in Victoria

Sidewalk cafes can transform our streets by creating energy and drawing people into an area. In an effort to encourage more vibrancy in our neighbourhoods and ensure that public spaces remain accessible, the City of Victoria is introducing new guidelines for sidewalk cafes and updating the bylaw that regulates them. Businesses and residents were invited to send in their feedback on the draft guidelines and bylaw by Friday, March 18. View Project
