The Shirley/Jordan River 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. 4001, “Official Community Plan for Shirley – Jordan River, Bylaw No. 1, 2016", which will repeal and replace the existing Shirley/Jordan River Official Community Plan, Bylaw No. 3717, at its April 19, 2016 meeting. At this meeting the LUC recommended that proposed Bylaw No. 4001 be referred to agencies and to the Shirley/Jordan River 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. 4001 was considered by the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area Parks and Recreation Advisory Planning Commission on April 26, 2016 and by the Agricultural Advisory Planning Commission May 9, 2016.
The Shirley/Jordan River Advisory Planning Commission considered Bylaw No. 4001 at its meeting of May 4, 2016 and June 1, 2016.
The LUC reviewed proposed Bylaw No. 4001 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. 4001 at their meeting of April 17, 2018 and recommend giving first and second reading and proceeding to public hearing. The CRD Board supported this recommendation at their May 9, 2018 meeting.
