    Will the city explore removing Parking minimums during the review this summer?

    EdgarHue asked about 1 month ago

    The City will take a comprehensive look at all parking requirements in residential zones. This will include considering lowering existing parking minimums. At this time, fully removing parking minimums is not being explored.

    The City will also consider expanding the Downtown Off-Street Parking Specified area, which would expand the area where non-residential land uses are not required to provide any parking.

    With all the new housing and people coming where are they going to get medical support with a system that is already stretched to thin??

    ???? asked about 1 month ago

    Medicine and health support is a provincial matter. The City does not have jurisdiction over this system.

    However, as part of the Official Community Plan updates that will be occurring, Vancouver Island Health will be consulted as part of the engagement process for a new Official Community Plan and the City can see where there are opportunities to support the system. 

    Further, adding more housing variety to the city could make it more possible for more medical professionals to move to Campbell River.
