The Town’s Planning Advisory Committee will hold a public meeting on July 20, 2016 at 6:00PM at the Berwick and District Volunteer Fire Hall to engage public participation in consideration of certain amendments to the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and the Land Use Bylaw (LUB).

The amendments to be considered are: a change to Section 2.9 CON2 to allow rezoning of parts of the Conservation Zone (OS2) to Gateway Mixed Use (GMU1) where:

The OS2 designation is retained for all lands lying within 30 metres of the Cornwallis River;

And where all uses of the rezoned lands are subject to a development agreement;

The amendments proposed to the LUB would be to rezone that portion of 55242648, 291 Commercial Street, that meets the proposed criteria, to GMU1 in conformity with the rest of the property.
