CORNER BROOK  Anyone intending to develop property in Corner Brook in the coming years may want to attend a public hearing the city is hosting March 14.

Chris Neal addresses the public meeting of Corner Brook’s city council on behalf of West Valley Road residents Monday night.  The residents, who no longer get mail delivered to their doors by Canada Post, presented a petition asking the city to reduce the speed limit on a portion of the street until sidewalks could be constructed there. 

The hearing will focus on the 2012 integrated municipal sustainability plan and 2012 development regulations adopted by the City of Corner Brook on Feb. 25.

Anyone who wishes to object, support or make any comment on the new sustainability plan or the new development regulations will have an opportunity to do so at this hearing, as long as they notify the City of Corner Brook that they wish to make submissions at least two days prior to the hearing.

The sustainability plan is meant to replace the 1994-2004 municipal plan, and the new development regulations are intended to replace the existing regulations adopted in 1994.

The documents pertain to land use within the city.

The public hearing will be held at city hall at 7 p.m. on March 14. For more information on the plan or the hearing, residents can visit city hall or the city’s website at www.cornerbrook.com.

    What a stupid joke this article is. There are a lot of proposals that have been presented to the authorities in corner brook for business projects that were sound , feasable & should have been passed inspection & flourishing today, but were rejected by the present council. The city council of corner brook should be asked by all citizens to immediately resign mainly for their "LOVE IN" with thomas resources for the insane thing they are proposing to do near our water supply. They turn away anyone who has no big amount of money or political clout but allow firms like thomas resources to "FRIG" around our water supply. Wake up citizens now & if not now do not forget voting day what this council are all about. It,s not about corner brook & they have to go.

    Corner Brook's best and only obvious "plan" was the one implemented by Bowater's...elegant, simple, compact and aethestically pleasing. Everything since has been a complete, utter, unmanageable mess.
