Despite Trellis’ request to remove their application from the meeting’s agenda, the item was discussed anyway.
Chair of the Committee Councillor Mike Shanks says the Silverstone has been on people’s minds for a considerable period of time so councillors felt it needed to be dealt with.
Two other recommendations by Sechelt’s Interim Community Planner were rejected by the committee.
One recommendation was to draft a bylaw to create a new Comprehensive Development Zone to support the proposed facility by Trellis.
The other was to change the future land use designation of the proposed location by Trellis, in West Sechelt from Multifamily/Mixed Residential to Civic and Institutional and Utilities.
