Wednesday public hearing discusses big box stores in Central Saanich

The public will have its say Wednesday on a bylaw to allow larger retail stores in the Keating business area of Central Saanich.

The official community plan currently limits stores in the traditional industrial area of the district to fewer than 53,800 square feet.

With competition mounting from First Nations on the District of Central Saanich for commercial development, council passed a motion to delete a reference in the Official Community Plan that restricts large footprint or big box stores.

The bylaw to remove that reference goes to public hearing March 21, at 6:30 p.m. in the fire training centre at municipal hall, 1903 Mount Newton X Rd.
