Pursuant to Sections 890 (4) and 893 of the Local Government Act, notice is hereby given that the Regional District of Alberni‐Clayoquot Board of Directors has waived notice of Public Hearing and intends to consider second and third readings of the “Regional District of Alberni‐Clayoquot Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw P1245” at its regular Board of Director’s meeting to be held on Wednesday, January 27, 2010 starting at 1:30 pm in the Board Room at the Regional District of Alberni‐Clayoquot office located at 3008 Fifth Avenue, Port Alberni, BC.
The Regional District of Alberni‐Clayoquot Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw P1245, upon adoption, will amend the “Regional District of Alberni‐Clayoquot Zoning By‐law No. 15, 1971” by adding the following subsections to Section 143, Marine Recreation (MR) District to read as follows:
