University Village Local Area Plan Open House

The Municipality of North Cowichan, in collaboration with the City of Duncan, is preparing a Local Area Plan for the area around Vancouver Island University/James Street/Beverly Street to assist in the future redevelopment of this area and to help flesh out the strategic policies identified in the Official Community Plan (OCP). The plan will establish a vision, goals and objectives for this area for the next 30 years.
The Municipality of North Cowichan, the City of Duncan, and the consulting team would like to hear what you -- residents, visitors, business owners, landowners, and other stakeholders -- have to say about the future of this area.
An Open House will be held on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Mesachie Room at the Island Savings Centre, 2687 James Street, Duncan, B.C.
"This is an exciting area, and we need a strong plan for the future," stated Mayor Jon Lefebure. "We invite input from the community to breathe new life into this area and make it a better place to live, work and play," he added.
Phil Kent, Mayor of Duncan added, "The City is excited to partner with North Cowichan and work together with the community on the University Village Local Area Plan that will guide the future of this key area."
