Campbell River continues secondary suites consultation with online survey and in-person consultation

Two more public information events are scheduled for September and an online survey will be available from Aug. 26 to Sept. 12.

A draft bylaw to allow secondary suites in all single-family residences received first reading from Council on July 22 with direction to pursue public input on the proposed change. Public information events were held Aug. 7 at the Campbell River Community Centre and Aug. 20 at the Willow Point Hall. The City also sought feedback from passers-by at the entrances to local grocery stores.
