Community Association Land Use Committee
The CALUC is a volunteer committee that researches community opinion on land use in our neighbourhood. The CALUC helps our neighbours engage in community planning by providing opportunities and processes to collect and forward residents’ comments to City Council. The CALUC 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 CALUC 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.
- The FGCA CALUC is hosting both preliminary and public meetings for all prospective developments as per established practice. Meetings will be held either in person, online, or both. Please check this page regularly for updates. Applicants for all developments are to contact CALUC at email@example.com. For further information on notification and application procedures and other matters, please see The City of Victoria website and their development tracker.

Making CALUC meetings more accessible for all community members
FGCA has run its CALUC meetings successfully throughout the COVID pandemic. We recently heard from community members that they would like more options to participate, especially those who can’t make the scheduled times (7:00pm) because of childcare and other commitments. We heard suggestions that we record the meetings, make the recordings available online, and invite input via email. We are pleased to announce that we will be testing this with our next meeting, and hope to make it a permanent feature of our CALUC process.

The Development Tracker follows the progress of rezoning applications and will be of interest to both applicants and neighbourhood residents. Once a proposal has been filed with the City, the status of current Fairfield-Gonzales projects (as well as all others) may be reviewed by clicking the link above
