Received RE: Fish Farm Public Hearing at Sayward

Hi Deb,

 The submissions with respect to Bylaw No. 29 are currently being tallied, copied and packaged for distribution to the Regional Board members that will be voting on Bylaw No. 29. As a result, I am unable to provide you with the number of submissions received at this time.

 The attendance sheets for the public hearing were completed by a total of 219 people.

 Minutes of the public hearing will be posted on the Strathcona Regional District website (www.strathconard.ca) along with all of the submissions that were received. This will likely occur over the next two weeks as it will take considerable staff time to convert all of the submissions into electronic format. The submissions received as a result of the first public hearing on April 14, 2009 are available for review on the website.

 Bylaw No. 29 will be considered for third reading by the Regional Board at its meeting on June 25, 2009.

 Thank you.

Hi Deb:

 The hall was packed in Sayward, with close to 300 people. There were a lot of people for both sides, and the hearing went until midnight. Grieg stacked the hall and speakers list early, and some of our supporters from Quadra Island had to leave to catch a ferry and did not get to speak. They did however make written submissions. The submissions should be up on the Strathcona Regional District soon, if they are not already.

 The vote will take place on June 25th, and we will do an update at that time. We need 2 of the 4 directors to vote no in order to defeat the zoning bylaw. Fingers crossed…

 Regards,

Michelle Young
