The Bell McKinnon area is within the Municipality's urban containment boundary, and includes the location of the future new Regional Hospital. The Municipality has retained Barefoot Planning, a Victoria-based firm, to conduct a Local Area Plan to guide future development of the Bell McKinnon neighbourhood. The Plan will be conducted over the coming months, with the goal of completion by May or June 2018.
