Update on the Minette Bay West Concept Plan Process

Update on the Minette Bay West Concept Plan Process

The District of Kitimat thanks everyone who participated in Phases 1 and 2 of the Minette Bay West Concept Plan this past fall. Hundreds of community members provided input into the planning process through one-on-one conversations, surveys, facilitated group discussions, comment forms, e-mail and other methods. The following formal public input opportunities occurred this fall:

  • Phase 1 Community Open House (October 26);
  • Booth at Annual Kitimat Fall Craft & Gift Sale (November 4 and 5);
  • Booth at Love Kitimat Trade Show (November 25); 
  • Booth at Light Up Kitimat outdoor festival (November 27);
  • Community survey (October 26 - November 28); and
  • Stakeholder Visioning Workshop (November 30). 

All of the community input received throughout Phases 1 and 2 to date is currently being summarized and will be made available in a Community Engagement Summary document, which will be posted on our project web page (www.kitimat.ca/MBW) in early 2017. The project team will use this document and Phase 1 site investigation findings to develop multiple concept plan options for Minette Bay West. These options will be presented to the community for review and feedback at an open house in early 2017; date and venue to be announced. Stay tuned.

Happy Holidays from the project team!
