A public hearing has been scheduled for 7p.m. Wednesday, May, 17, 2017 at the Quadra Island Community Centre to consider Bylaw No. 272 - Quadra Island Zoning Bylaw, 1990, Amendment No. 117. The bylaw, if adopted, would rezone a 12.0-hectare portion of foreshore adjacent to two parcels on Hyacinthe Bay Road, Heriot Bay from Access One (AC-1) to a new Marine Institutional One (MP-1) zone to facilitate the use of the foreshore for marine monitoring and research purposes. This foreshore institutional use will operate in conjunction with the existing upland permitted use. Should the proposed new MP-1 zone be applied, the issuance of a Crown land tenure and compliance with appropriate Federal and Provincial policies and regulations is required prior to the installation of any marine monitoring or research equipment.
