District Acquisitions Corporation is in the process of purchasing the property, and is proposing to develop the now vacant lot in multiple phases.

The applicants have proposed amendments to the Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw and to the Zoning Bylaw to allow the first phase of their proposed project—a single family residential subdivision along 16th Avenue and an apartment building at the corner of Burde Street and Anderson Avenue.

Members of the public will have an opportunity to voice their input regarding these proposals at tonight’s public hearing.

The hearing begins at 6 p.m. in city hall council chambers.
