Proposed Zoning Amendment: 607 Columbia Street

Dear Residents' Association:

Re: 607 Columbia Street, New Westminster, BC

An application has been received to relocate a Liquor Primary License to 609 Columbia Street (legal address: 607 Columbia Street) (shown hatched in black on the sketch plan attached). The applicant proposes to operate a lounge with an occupant load of up to 88 people. The City has already reviewed the application and indicated support to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch. The City is now moving forward with the processing of the application to amend the New Westminster Zoning Bylaw in order to allow a Liquor Primary Licensed Premises at this location.

Is is the policy of the Advisory Planning Commission to notify property owners in the immediate area of a site proposed for rezoning. Your opinion on this matter would be appreciated. You may submit your views in writing or, if you require further information, you are invited to attend the Advisory Planning Commission meeting on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. in Committee Room #2 at City Hall, 511 Royal Avenue. In order for correspondence to receive full consideration by the Advisory Planning Commission, we would encourage that all written submissions be submitted the Friday prior to the meeting.

Further information on this proposal may be obtained by phoning Development Services - Planning at 604-527-4532.

For your information, a brochure outlinining the Commission's role and meeting procedures is enclosed.

Yours truly,

Lynn Roxburgh
Planning Assistant
