Has it struck you that the music which is regarded as the most sublime in western civilization, which is the music of Bach, is called baroque?

Mount Tolmie – Camosun Community Plan

Have your say in the future of your community!

The Mount Tolmie and Camosun Community Associations have joined forces to sponsor a Community Plan for our combined area.

This area corresponds with the area covered by the 18-year-old Shelbourne Local Area Plan (LAP), which is different from the Shelbourne Valley Action Plan (SVAP).  While the SVAP focuses mainly on urban design and transportation details, the Shelbourne LAP covers a larger area and higher level topics such as land use and climate change.

The goal of the Mount Tolmie – Camosun Community Plan is to create a community-oriented document based upon Saanich’s LAP that will encompass topics not covered by the SVAP in our area.

The first step in creating a Community Plan is to consult with community members on common goals and priorities.  Share your vision for the Mount Tolmie – Camosun Community by filling out this survey online:
www.surveymonkey.com/r/mtccplan

Survey deadline extended
Please submit surveys by April 15th to ensure your feedback is received.

We appreciate all feedback!  The results of the survey will be shared with residents and could help guide the Camosun Community Association in future operations.

If you have any questions, please email:
mtccplan@gmail.com

Shelbourne Valley Action Plan open houses

While the majority of the Shelbourne Valley Action Plan (SVAP) is complete, Saanich Planning is seeking input on the short-term mobility options for Shelbourne Street.  The options include a two-lane vehicle option with bicycle lanes along the entire length, and a four-lane vehicle option with limited cycle tracks.  The section through the Camosun Community, between North Dairy and Derby, will be affected by either option.  Three open houses will be held in the upcoming weeks, with the closest to the Camosun Community being held on March 5th, 2-6pm at the Cedar Hill Rec Centre.  Please visit the webpage below for more information.
