FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Council will decide on a Development Variance Permit for the proposed Salvation Army supportive housing project on Monday.
BC Housing and the Salvation Army are looking to develop a 42 unit supportive housing facility on the same property as the existing Salvation Army Centre of Hope.
The development would provide more beds and services for the vulnerable population of Fort St. John.
The proposed variance request would reduce the front parcel line setback from 1.2 metres to 0 metres, in order to construct a terrace.
Council will listen to those in the audience to comment on the DVP application.
According to CAO Milo MacDonald, “staff are supportive of the Development Variance Permit as presented and note the positive impact to vulnerable populations.”
The proposed application is in line with three strategic goals of the City:
If Council does authorize the Development Variance Permit, Legislative Services will register the DVP at the Land Titles Office and finalize the development permit for issuance.
Fort St. John Council will meet for a Regular Council Meeting on Monday, July 26th at 3 p.m.
