The CALUC 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 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.

Agenda items for Upcoming Community Meetings

November 7

  • Community meeting for 931 McClure St.

November 21

  • Community meeting for 902 Foul Bay
    Aryze is proposing an 18 unit mix of 1bed, 2bed and 3bed compact affordable homeownership townhouses with BC Housing. The homes will be clustered into four blocks around pocket greenspaces while retaining as much existing vegetation as possible. A heritage restoration plan will be undertaken to restore the heritage rock wall and iron gate to complement the building architecture.

    Please note: An error was made by the applicant on the Community Meeting Form. On the second page, data table, on the second mention of “Internal Side Lot Line”, it should read “1.5m” instead of “3.0m”. This error will be further explained by the applicant in the meeting so that all are aware of the change.

  • Preliminary meeting for 1120, 1124 and 1128 Burdett Ave.
