The East Sooke Citizens' Committee has completed its review of the Official Community Plan (OCP) draft.
The Juan de Fuca Land Use Committee (LUC) considered proposed Bylaw No. 4000, "Official Community Plan for East Sooke, Bylaw No. 1, 2016", which will repeal and replace the existing East Sooke Official Community Plan, Bylaw No. 3718, at its February 16, 2016 meeting. At this meeting the LUC recommended that proposed Bylaw No. 4000 be referred to agencies and to the East Sooke Advisory Planning Commission, the Juan de Fuca Agricultural Advisory Planning Commission and the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area Parks and Recreation Advisory Planning Commission.
Proposed Bylaw No. 4000 was considered by the East Sooke Advisory Planning Commission on April 25, 2016, by the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission on April 26, 2016 and by the Agricultural Advisory Planning Commission on May 9, 2016.
The LUC reviewed proposed Bylaw No. 4000 at its July 19, 2016 meeting. The bylaw was put on hold pending review of the Regional Growth Strategy.
The LUC reconsidered proposed Bylaw No. 4000 at their meeting of April 17, 2018 and recommended that Bylaw No. 4000 proceed to first and second readings and to public hearing. The CRD Board considered this recommendation at their meeting on May 9, 2018.
