Central Saanich council is considering two variance proposals brought to their Monday, March 2 meeting.

Metro Liquor at 7180 West Saanich Road has applied to expand its window signage from the current 15 per cent coverage allowed, to a full-window graphic display depicting a vineyard scene, covering 100 per cent of the window area on the main level.

Secondly, Daleen A. Thomas has applied to allow her to open her law office on the ground floor at 828 Verdier Avenue in Brentwood Bay.

Current zoning restrictions only allow offices on the second floor of the building.

District staff noted that the particular focus of Thomas’ law practice is family law and a portion of her practice would serve as a family resource centre. By locating on the ground floor, resources would be more readily available to the public.

Both reports will be referred to the Advisory Planning Committee for review and recommendation back to council.
