Public hearing Thursday in Masset

  • Jul. 18, 2007 4:00 p.m.

The regional district holds a public hearing Thursday (July 19) at the Howard Phillips Community Hall in Masset regarding an application to change the zoning on a piece of property on North Beach. The owners of the 41-acre lot have applied to change the zoning to tourist accommodation from agricultural-forestry. The change will allow them to develop an eco-lodge with guest cabins and camping facilities. The lot, about two kilometres east of Tow Hill, is private property but within the borders of Naikoon Provincial Park. There is no road access to it and also no electrical service. Anyone can speak at the public hearing or submit their opinion in writing. Written submissions must be in to the regional district office in Prince Rupert by 2 pm July 19. Submissions received after the public hearing is over will not be considered.
