City of North Vancouver Public Hearing on the Zoning Bylaw amendment and Small Creatures Limitation Bylaw amendment
Monday, September 17, 2012, 7PM
City Hall, 141 West 14th Street
North Vancouver

If you feel comfortable addressing council, we encourage you to show your support by sharing your opinion. The intent of the Public Hearing is to give all members of the public a reasonable opportunity to present their point of view, to offer suggestions, and to indicate support or concerns. Once the public hearing has concluded, no further information or submissions can be considered by council. If time permits the same evening or at the next available open meeting, the proposed changes will be brought forward for second or third and final reading under the Bylaw section of the Council Agenda.

Don't forget to wear your CLUCK buttons if you have them; we will also have stickers available for those of you who do not.

Let's pack the audience!

I think it would be great to share a table Randy. I'll let Emily know.

Looks like Evonne and I can be there - Lucien, it is in the afternoon, can you still come out and play?

Anyone else?

Comment by Randy Chatterjee on February 11, 2012 at 10:26pm

It looks like I will be there with one of our neighbourhood Village seed libraries, and might have an opportunity to present the concept of seed libraries during the event.  I'd love some help tabling and just helping to talk about the power of collaboration.

Hello All,

Would we like to have a table at the Edible Garden Projects Seedy Saturday on March the 3rd. Good opportunity to let folks know more about Village North Shore.

Excellent! This could be one way to get some Village North Shore projects going and create more momentum.

Discussion Forum


Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

74 discussions


If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

6 discussions


A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
