Update: Gonzales Neighbourhood Plan is on hold
On October 4, 2018 Council passed the following motion to put the Gonzales Neighbourhood Plan on hold until the completion of all other neighbourhood plans.
Motion to Defer Gonzales Neighbourhood Plan:
"That the draft Gonzales Neighbourhood plan be put on hold and be brought back for discussion after completion of all other neighbourhood plans and that the 2002 neighbourhood plan and the OCP are the policy documents that staff will refer to with regard to proposed developments in the neighbourhood."
Thank you for your feedback on the revised draft plan!
