At the beginning of 2020, Merritt City Council tasked staff with updating and modernizing the City’s zoning bylaw.
After six months of work from the planning department and Manager Don McArthur, the new bylaw is set to be debated this evening by Council.
Overall, the changes to the bylaw are encompassed in over 200 pages of information being presented tonight. (The bylaw can be found here - https://www.merritt.ca/agendas-minutes/)
“The content of this new Bylaw is markedly different than the previous edition, though the general layout has largely been maintained, along with some figures and language. This staff report summarizes the changes made to each Part, which collectively form a modernization of development regulations in Merritt,” wrote McArthur.
If the bylaw receives first and second reading tonight, a public hearing will be scheduled before any changes are adopted at a future meeting.
Tonight’s meeting will be held online at 7 pm.
