Public Comment - PTI Group Application for OCP and Zoning Amendment

Kitimat Council invites public comment before making decisions on a proposed Official Community Plan (OCP) and zoning amendment application by PTI Group Inc. to develop up to 2104 temporary workforce accommodation units in the Strawberry Meadows area of Kildala Neighbourhood.  Zoning of the site would change from G3-B Strawberry Meadows to R3-B Multi-Family with an initial capacity limit of approximately 290 units.  A Housing Agreement would be in place allowing for stepped increases in capacity, and specifically what community amenities would be provided by PTI Group Inc. at each step.  The Housing Agreement would expire in January 2035.  At that time, site capacity would return to 290.
