Central Saanich’s Marigold Lands project still in municipal process

Bylaw readings in Central Saanich expected by Christmas.

The District of Central Saanich and the Marigold Lands Development team are working to finalize the enabling bylaws for the proposed commercial and residential site.

The team presented a draft Official Community Plan (OCP) Amendment and Rezoning application to the District’s Committee of the Whole in June. District staff were directed to work on preparing enabling bylaws.

The previous owner of the Marigold Nursery  site allowed people to salvage equipment, materials and structures for re-purposing.

Demolition crews proceeded to sort out the remaining scrap materials into different piles for recycling and careful disposal.

The remaining on-site structures will be demolished conventionally, as the on-site houses were not suitable for moving.

The enabling bylaws, which will be presented to council for first and second reading, are anticipated to be advanced before Christmas. A public hearing on the bylaws and consideration for adoption will follow.
