Uptown - Douglas Corridor Study
On Aug. 10, 2020 the draft Uptown Douglas Plan was presented to Council. The decision was made to not schedule the Public Hearing at this time. MVCCA is concerned that this delay leaves the Core without a finalized area plan. As I understand it, it is anticipated that Planning Dep't will be presenting the supplementary report to Council in early March 2021.
The MVCCA and local area residents participated in this study, approved by Saanich Council in September of 2015. The area of concern is that part of the Saanich Core on either side of the Saanich portion of Douglas Street. The Planning Dep't presented a progress summary to Council, on Nov. 6th, 2017. The committee met in May 2019 to review the draft report.
