Comox council approved first and second reading of zoning amendment bylaw 1880 – an amendment to prohibit the sale of cannabis within the town. It is the first of two steps to adopt the Town’s bylaw to the pending federal and provincial legislation to legalize recreational cannabis use.
The public will have an opportunity to voice opinions about a four storey, 81-unit mixed-use commercial residential building on Anderton Road next month.
Late last year, Comox council gave first reading for a development permit and zoning amendment for the 15m tall building at 618 and 634 Anderston Road.
The building is being proposed by Broadstreet Properties in Campbell River, and would include approximately 625m2 of commercial premises in addition to the residential units and 111 parking spaces.
A public hearing in respect to bylaws 1872 and 1873 and discharge of a restrictive covenant is set for April 4 at 7 p.m. at d’Esterre House (1801 Beaufort Ave.).

The proposal is for the rezoning of the property from R3.3 Single Family – Large Lot to R4.1 Single Family – 250m2 parcel to facilitate a 16-lots single-family subdivision.
The final public hearing set for the same day is for a rezoning application (RZ 18-1) for the addition of one new use veterinary clinic in the core commercial zone to permit that use at 215 Port Augusta St. at the Comox Mall.
