The city says the rational for the proposed boundary extension is to manage and accommodate growth requirements that cannot be met by vacant lands within the city’s existing boundaries, and to protect the strategic interests of the city with respect to future growth and development.

Fort St. John will be out of available industrial and residential land within the next few years if growth continues as anticipated.

The city has successfully obtained 2 boundary extensions in the past 25 years, once in 1989 to include the South Sewer Lagoons and Community Forest, and again in 2001 for the inclusion of the OSB Plant.  

The open house is running from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
