Cumberland council has granted Rideout Construction a development permit to construct a new library on the main level of a two-storey building at 2748 Dunsmuir Ave.
The second floor will contain three apartments.
The library could generate 10 to 20 vehicles per hour at the peak of operation, according to a traffic analysis study. The Village has expressed concern about traffic along the lane between Third and Fourth streets, which is too narrow for two-way traffic.
Council also granted a development variance permit to vary the number of parking spaces from the required 14 to nine spaces.

Council voted to participate in a regional district organics composting pilot project to compost kitchen organics.
The CVRD proposes to use the Gore Cover system adjacent to the compost facility at the Waste Management Centre. In-home collection is the lowest cost option, about $37 per household for a kitchen catcher and container.
The Village will receive a reduced tipping fee of $65 per tonne for co-mingled waste, compared to regular garbage at $80 per tonne.
