Residents asked: what does Crofton future hold?

The Municipality of North Cowichan is offering one last chance to weigh in on the draft plan detailing the future of Crofton.

"We know that Crofton has a strong sense of community and great potential. As we look to the future, this plan will be the blueprint for planned growth, leading to a sustainable community that can provide housing, services, business opportunities and employment," said Mayor Jon Lefebure. "We invite residents to attend this final open house to give us their feedback on the draft plan and the future of their community."

On Thursday, Sept. 18 the community is invited to the Crofton Community Centre from 5-9 p.m. Project consultant James Tuer will make a presentation at 6 p.m. on the Crofton Local Area Plan. That plan is designed to flesh out the priorities identified in the Official Community Plan. "The LAP will also assist in investment and land use decisions for this area during the next 30 years and help to provide certainty for everyone involved in the community – residents, business owners, landowners and developers," said the municipality in a press release.

The draft plan is the culmination of input received through an open house in November 2013 and a three-day design workshop in March of this year.

The plan details everything from street configuration and plantings to commercial zones and types of housing.

Following the open house a plan will be produced, then taken to the Community Planning Advisory Committee. From there it will go to council.s
