Public hearing receives no in-person feedback for proposed 42-unit Comox townhouse development

The proposal is for 2310 Guthrie Road

A public hearing in Comox to get feedback on a proposed 42-unit townhouse development on Guthrie Road received no in-person feedback earlier this month.

At July’s Comox council meeting, council approved first and second reading on a zoning amendment bylaw and a development agreement for the development at 2310 Guthrie Road which would also have 530 square metres of commercial space.

On Sept. 2, council held a public heading at the d’Esterre Centre for the rezoning application and no members of the public came forward to speak. However, a maximum of 15 members of the public were allowed to attend the public hearing in-person in order to enable patrons to maintain a distance of two metres from one another.

Written submissions were being accepted via email prior to the public hearing.

If the rezoning application is approved, there would be a payment of $62,842 to the Town’s Affordable Housing Reserve Fund.

The building would be constructed so that the portion facing Guthrie Road would be commercial space, and that there would be five adaptable housing units included.
