Council gave second reading to a development agreement for 27 West Pleasant Street that will allow a group home for youths to be operated on the site.

The town’s planning advisory committee had previously recommended the acceptance of the development agreement, which was the subject of a public participation opportunity and a public hearing. First reading was given last month.

Staff had previously indicated the proposed group home conforms to policies in the town’s municipal planning strategy and Land-Use Bylaw. They also didn’t anticipate any significant negative impact on the surrounding neighbourhood.
