Cluster of public hearings planned for one night in Langford

City council will consider a wide range of rezoning applications

What do a church, daycare, gas station, apartment building and Bear Mountain have in common? They’ll all be up for debate during the next round of public hearings.

The City of Langford has called public meetings for rezoning applications on five different properties in the area. These include two in the Bear Mountain development, a church and daycare application for 2207 Millstream Rd., a six-storey residential building (to replace a single-family home) at 778 Hockley Ave. and a gas station for the corner of Kelly and Jacklin roads.

However, city planning director Matthew Baldwin expected that the application for the gas station would be removed from the docket due to a required traffic study not being completed in time.

“They started off, pun-intended, down the right road,” he said.

The six-storey building proposed for 778 Hockley Ave. is what Baldwin believed to be the last development site on that side of the road, and will be the “same as the other Hockley Avenue apartments on either side.”

As for the church and daycare application, the application is just a “housekeeping matter for the property owners,” he said, adding that the property on the former All Fun Recreation site would need to be rezoned to get a daycare licence.

At the time of the Gazette’s press deadline, all five hearings were scheduled for Monday, July 20, at 7 p.m.
