VIMC Public Hearing (Bylaw 3761) to Continue on Thursday, October 3

Council began a public hearing on Tuesday, October 1 for the Vancouver Island Motorsports Circuit’s rezoning application (Bylaw 3761) to rezone an existing motorsport facility and proposed expansion area at the Cowichan Valley Highway and Drinkwater Road.

The public hearing continued until 11:00p.m. on October 1; however, due to the number of people that wished to speak, not everyone was able to be heard. As a result, the public hearing will reconvene on Thursday, October 3, at 6:00p.m. at the Theatre in the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre.

Written public input can continue to be submitted electronically to until 12:00p.m. on Thursday, October 3. After that, written comments can still be accepted; however, they have to be submitted personally to the Corporate Officer at the public hearing in order to form part of the public record. 

Individuals wishing to speak on October 3 should note: a speaker sign-up sheet will not be used on October 3. We will call upon registered speakers remaining from the October 1 speakers list, and following that, anyone wishing to speak will be invited to line up at a microphone.
