A study has been initiated to create a vision and plan for the Uptown – Douglas corridor area.

Stretching from the City of Victoria border to just north of the Saanich Municipal Hall, the study area represents a critical regional hub that is expected to experience significant growth and change over time.

Based on the overarching framework of sustainability, the plan will address land use, built form, transportation and mobility, environment, community services and amenities and urban design in order to guide future development.

The District of Saanich is seeking members for a Project Advisory Committee to assist with the development of the plan. The Project Advisory Committee will play an important role in ensuring the community is effectively engaged and all perspectives are represented.

Key roles of the committee will be to: advise on public engagement techniques to ensure outreach is effectively undertaken in the community; promote the project and public engagement opportunities within the community; and provide feedback to staff on plan concepts and content.

A diverse range of individuals is desired to help ensure business, resident and stakeholder interests are accounted for in the planning process.

Advisory committee application forms and more information can be obtained by visiting saanich.ca/udcp.
