***UPDATE FOLLOWING PLEBISCITE:
Voters in Wileville provided their input on whether Council should consider the adoption of land use planning regulations ("Zoning") in their community.
The (unofficial) results from the Plebiscite are that 60.3% voted in favour ("YES") of adopting land use controls. The conclusion to take from this (unofficial) result is that: an insufficient percentage of Wileville residents voted in favour of adopting land use planning.
Council's policy identifies that a two-thirds majority (66.6%) is required, in favour of land use planning, in having the Municipality proceed to the next step in forming a new Plan Area. Staff will provide a report to Council on the Plebiscite's results, and on the process leading to it, at a later date. An information notice will be sent out via this e-list serve prior to the date of staff's presentation to Council. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Merrill, Director of Planning & Development Services, at the Planning Offices, at 902-541-1325.
