Public consultation sessions on the City’s proposed metal shipping container bylaw begin tonight at city hall.

The session takes place from 7-9 p.m. and another will be held at the same time and place on Thursday, May 19.

The sessions are to discuss regulating the use of metal shipping containers within city limits and are to provide property owners the opportunity to learn about and provide input on the amended bylaw proposed.

The proposed amendments would allow shipping containers on residential property on a temporary basis only, and would require a permit.

Commercial and industrial properties would be permitted to have the containers on a temporary or permanent basis, but they must be screened from view in the case of a permanent container.

“Consultation is crucial any time the City looks at changing a bylaw,” says senior bylaw officer Brad McRae. “I encourage everyone with an interest to attend and offer their input.”
