Saanich invites public input for Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan update
May 3, 2018
For immediate release
Saanich, BC – The District of Saanich invites residents to attend an open house and complete a survey to provide feedback on the Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan update. The updated local area plan will guide planning and land use decisions in the community over the next 20 to 30 years.
Local area plans are neighbourhood plans that are developed with extensive consultation with community members. As directed by Council, Saanich has initiated the update of all 12 local area plans. Each plan update will include various public input opportunities and take approximately 18 months to complete. The first two local area plans to be updated are the Cadboro Bay and Cordova Bay Local Area Plans.
The public is invited to attend informal, drop-in community visioning open houses for the Cadboro Bay Local Area Plan update. Both open houses will be identical. Attendees will learn about the existing plan and can provide input on a vision for Cadboro Bay, along with issues, opportunities and priorities to address in the updated plan.
Saturday, May 12, 2018
- Time: 2 to 6 p.m.
- Location: St. George’s Anglican Church, 3909 St. George’s Lane
Monday, May 14, 2018
- Time: 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Complementing the open houses, a virtual open house and online survey will be available for residents so they can provide input on the future of Cadboro Bay. The survey is open from May 12 to June 10, 2018 and is available at saanich.ca/cadboro.
Residents are encouraged to share what makes the people and places in Cadboro Bay special to them by using the hashtag #MyCaddyBay on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Capturing these moments using photos will help illustrate the unique qualities of the neighbourhood and allow residents to contribute to the conversation in a creative way.
Future opportunities for public input will include a two-day Cadboro Bay Village design charrette from June 19 to 20, where community members can contribute to planning the future of this community hub. More information on the event schedule and public participation opportunities will be available in the coming weeks.
