Sechelt Council is divided on what to do with the land originally purchased for a new sewage treatment plant.
The plant is being built beside the existing one at Ebbtide, so the District will use part of Lot L on Dusty Road for a new public works yard.
And Council is being asked to consider rezoning the land to make it easier to sell or lease the other part.
Councillor Alice Lutes says she opposes rezoning because she thinks the District should keep the property.
District officials say they’ve had an “unsolicited expression of interest” from someone who might want to buy the property.
Mayor John Henderson says he’d like to see the idea go to public hearing so residents can weigh in. Approval for a first reading and hearing passed 3-2 vote at committee July 9th. It now goes to full Council for endorsement.
