Meetings are scheduled for the backyard chicken debate and a proposal to ban the development of new drive-throughs in Squamish.
The municipality is bringing forward omnibus bills for its Official Community Plan (OCP) and zoning bylaws. The bills include a collection of unrelated amendments for both documents.
Among the proposed OCP amendments is one that would bar new drive-though developments from Squamish. Also on the table in the zoning bylaw is a look at backyard chickens. This will be the first time the public will be able to debate the long-discussed topic.
The omnibus measures will also deal with containers as building materials, medical marijuana operations' zoning and vegetable and fruit stalls on residents' property.
The open house on the zoning changes will be held on Monday (Jan. 27) from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Squamish Seniors Centre.
The public information session on the OCP amendments will be held on Thursday, Feb. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. at in the Squamish Public Library boardroom.
