About the Project
Project details coming soon.
The Role of Community Association Land Use Committees:
It is important to note that the purpose of this meeting is to begin the conversation between the community and the applicant. The Land Use committee does not have the power to make decisions on behalf of the city; instead, we are a point of contact for community members, and we do record comments and pass them along for council’s consideration. The Committee is here to ensure these important conversations happen and community consultation occurs. If you’d like to learn more about the role of Community Association Land Use Committees (CALUCS), please visit https://www.victoria.ca/assets/Departments/Planning~Development/Development~Services/Documents/CALUC%20Terms%20of%20Reference.pdf
or take a look at the description of our role from the City of Victoria’s Terms of Reference below.
- Facilitate dialogue between applicants and the community to identify issues (both positive and negative) regarding OCP amendment, rezoning, variance1 and liquor license applications.
- Be knowledgeable about the Neighbourhood and Precinct Plan(s) and inform and empower neighbours through education to be involved in the development application discussions. CALUC’s may also wish to comment on the interpretation of the relevancy of policies and whether development applications fit with the spirit and the intent of the Neighbourhood Plan.
- Communicate to everyone involved regarding issues identified with OCP Amendment, rezoning, variance, temporary use permit and liquor license applications o the adequacy of the community consultation.
The Vic West Community Association does not tolerate rude or aggressive behaviour. All participants are expected to conduct themselves in a respectful and constructive manner. Participants that are unable to follow these guidelines will be removed from the meeting.
