March 6, 2017 | LTC Meeting Highlights
The Galiano Island LTC considered four Temporary User Permit (TUP) applications for vacation home rentals. The permits were all approved with minor amendments. Consideration was also given to a rezoning application from the Galiano Conservancy. Subject to that consideration staff was directed to work with the applicants to develop a comprehensive development zone approach. Bylaw Nos. 259 and 260 (Wolstenholme) to allow a visitor accommodate use located on Georgeson Bay Road were also approved. The hard work of the Special Advisory Planning Commission on the Telecommunication Strategy was also acknowledged.
Galiano Island Local Trust Committee Projects
Local trust committees set their priorities and manage their community planning projects using a work program. Top priority projects on the LTC's work program have resources in place, or resources which will be soon available. Projects may be significant and long term, such as an Official Community Plan Review, or relatively minor, such as an amendment to a regulation in a Land Use Bylaw.
