Controversial Lantzville hearing postponed

A public hearing hosted by the District of Lantzville to address the potential for temporary use permits has been rescheduled to 7 p.m. on March 21 at Costin Hall, 7232 Lantzville Rd.

The original public hearing, which was to be held on Feb. 28, was cancelled because too many people showed up, many of them wishing to speak on the topic of urban farming, an issue that sparked Lantzville council to explore employing temporary use permits in its zoning bylaw.

In acknowledgment of provincial law, the time and venue was changed to allow everyone an opportunity to provide their thoughts on temporary use permits.
