The C.A.L.U.C. is a volunteer committee helping our neighbours engage in community planning by providing opportunities and processes to collect and forward residents’ comments to City Council.

The C.A.L.U.C. reviews a variety of development applications & proposals for rezoning in the Fairfield and Gonzales areas, and hears and records public input on these matters.  The C.A.L.U.C. has no decision-making authority over proposed developments, and all decisions are made by the city.  Residents may also provide input by writing to City Council, attending Council meetings, as well as talking to City councillors.  Community Meeting General Info.

Report on CRD response to community feedback re: Dallas Rd and Clover Pt amenities

In the late spring of 2017 we conducted consultation with residents about how the Dallas Road area could change after the construction of the pumping station and forcemain for the wastewater treatment project. The results were sent to the CRD and they committed to a community meeting at the 50% design stage. That meeting took place on January 11th.

We have prepared a report that details how the CRD has responded to each suggestion made in the report sent to them in 2017. For each suggestion, there is a recommended course of actions that should be taken soon.

Beacon Hill Park Multi-Use Pathway

The CRD Wastewater Treatment project has provided the City of Victoria with $100,000 to allocate towards community improvements. When the City approached the James Bay Neighbourhood Association and the Fairfield Gonzales Community Association for potential projects, both associations were supportive of creating a multi-use pathway linking the two communities through a portion of Beacon Hill Park.

We invite the community to an open house to learn more about the project and to seek your input.

When: Tuesday February 20, 2018, 6:30-8:00pm

Where: South Park Elementary School gymnasium, 508 Douglas St.

Notice for 331 St Charles Meeting. You are invited to a Community Meeting regarding a proposed development in Fairfield. The City is considering a Development Variance Permit application to subdivide two lots, 331 & 337 St Charles, in order to create a third lot and construct a single family dwelling with a secondary suite on the new lot. See details on the City’s Development Tracker website


April 12 – 7.00pm – Abigail’s Hotel

Abigail’s hotel at 906 McClure St. has bought the adjacent house at 910 McClure St.

The proposal is to build a standalone hotel with main floor breakfast area and three floors of hotel rooms (11 in total). There will be an extension of the surface parking at the rear of the property. The current property is zoned as R-K and the proposal is to have it re-zoned to T-7 which is consistent with Abigail’s current zoning.
