Public Hearing 28 May 2018

Zoning Amendment to Kitimat Municipal Code with Respect to Cannabis Retail and Production, Bylaw No.1919

Status:

What: A public hearing will be held on Monday, 28 May at 5:00 p.m. at the Joanne Monaghan Room, Riverlodge Recreation Centre to discuss the “Amendment to Kitimat Municipal Code with Respect to Cannabis Retail and Production, Bylaw No.1919”.

What changes? Kitimat Council is considering a zoning amendment for Kitimat Municipal Code with Respect to Cannabis Retail and Production, Bylaw No.1919.  The proposed bylaw will define “Cannabis Production” as a land use and will permit this land use on lots zoned;

M1 Manufacturing

M2 Service Centre

M2-B Service Centre Industrial Zone

And prohibit Cannabis Production in all other land use zones.

The proposed bylaw will define “Cannabis Retail” as a land use and will prohibit this land use throughout the community on all lots.

Although the bylaw proposes to regulate cannabis production and retail sales, this is a short-term measure and once the federal and provincial governments develop and pass the governing legislation and regulations (i.e. the rules) to govern the production, distribution, possession and sale of cannabis the District will review its position in relation to retail sale locations and areas for commercial production.

 

OTHER CANNABIS INFORMATION: The federal and provincial governments are finalizing legislation and regulations and there are some areas where local conditions can be enacted (shown below in brackets is the information known at this time).  In the areas where local conditions can be enacted, the District is researching ways to incorporate it into our community and soon will be seeking further public comment regarding:

  • Business licensing and security requirements for retail stores (the Province is currently developing the building security standards and required employee training),
  • Developing a policy for approving/denying retail stores (the Province has stated that if communities allow retail cannabis stores the locations can be determined by Council),
  • The hours of operation if retail stores are allowed (the Province has stated that if communities allow retail cannabis stores the hours are conditionally set as 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., but each community can further restrict the hours of operation),
  • Locations where outdoor cannabis use should be restricted or prohibited (the Province has started determining areas where cannabis cannot be publicly smoked or vaped, and the District will monitor this legislation and seek input on whether further restrictions are warranted).

Public Hearing 30 April 2018

Riverbank Camping Bylaw No. 1917, 2018 

Status: Bylaw adopted by Kitimat Council 30 April 2018

A public hearing will be held on Monday, 30 April at 6:30pm at Council Chambers, 606 Mountainview Square to consider “Riverbank Camping Bylaw No. 1917, 2018”.

Council is considering a bylaw that will regulate where camping can occur on provincial crown, public and private land in the District of Kitimat. The proposed bylaw defines “camping” as a land use, and allows “camping” in the following locations:

  1. Designated campgrounds;
  2. Un-alienated provincial crown land which is in the G5 Forestry Zone and:
    1. 500 metres or more east of Highway 37; or
    2. West of CN rail track and north of District Lot 6071 Range 5 Coast District;
    3. Private land where express written permission from the owner or occupier of that property is available for inspection by any official named in Part 1, Subdivision 2 for infractions under Part 9 of the Kitimat Municipal Code.

Adopting this bylaw, as drafted, will introduce a ban on camping along the Kitimat River within municipal boundaries. The fine for camping where prohibited will be $100 per day. Please note: the regulations above do not apply to Reserve land, including Kitamaat IR    No. 1.

Anyone wishing to comment on this bylaw may provide written comment to Mayor & Council c/o 270 City Centre, V8C 2H7; fax 250-632-4995; or email dok@kitimat.ca. Comments regarding the proposed bylaw must be received  before Thursday, 26 April 2018 at 8:30am to be included in the report to Mayor & Council. Submissions received by email after this deadline but before Monday, 30 April 2018 at 4:30pm will be read before Council at the Public Hearing. You may also speak in person, or deliver written comment, at the Public Hearing: Monday, 30 April 2018 at 6:30pm in Council Chambers, 606 Mountainview Square.

Residents are cautioned to take steps to protect their property and are strongly urged to review their insurance policy with their individual broker.
