Help set policies for care facility developments

Posted: 7 days ago

Sechelt's population is aging and we are also home to persons with special needs. As our residents age or their abilities change, demands increase for housing and care options to meet a range of situations.

Our Official Community Plan (OCP) is the framework that guides future development and we are considering expanding it to include policies or land use designations for the different types of care facilities .

We want to hear from area residents about these changes. Whether care facilities operated by the public sector or private industry, we want to ensure there are policy standards set for these types of developments that align with the vision for Sechelt.

We encourage you to take our online survey, available under our website contact bar. In addition, you can send in comments to development services@Sechelt.ca.

On September 7th, an Open House will be hosted from 4 to 6pm at Seaside Centre. There will also be an E-Town Hall on this subject on September 7th at 7pm in the Community Meeting Room and live streamed on our YouTube channel. More details are available on our Town Hall Input page.
