Coun. Vic Derman is expected Monday night to ask for his colleagues’ support in focusing the next joint Saanich-Victoria council meeting on planning opportunities along the Douglas Street corridor.
“What you want to do is choose the land-use you want, then use the transportation choices to accomplish that and support it, and I think we have a huge chance to do that there,” Derman said.
Saanich mayor Frank Leonard and Victoria mayor Dean Fortin told the News in December that the Douglas Street corridor was their No. 1 choice for topic of discussion.
The next joint council meeting is tentatively scheduled for the first week in February at Saanich municipal hall.
