Will there be any more three-storey buildings in Fort Langley? The Township council will be mulling over that issue later this month.
Following the decision last month to approve the Coulter Berry building in downtown Fort Langley, the council considered a motion Monday that would have banned any future similar structures, at least for the time being.
Councillor Kim Richter put forward a motion calling for a prohibition on such buildings until there is a new, updated Official Community Plan for the Fort.
She also wanted updating the Fortâ€™s OCP moved to a priority position on the to-do list for Township staff.
The idea was referred to a meeting of the Council Priorities Committee, which are sessions at which the Township councillors can debate major future issues at some length.
The vote referring the matter passed seven to two.
The Coulter Berry building has been controversial for some time, with a majority of speakers at a recent lengthy, three-day public hearing coming out in favor.
The structure is to be built at the corner of Mavis Avenue and Glover Road.
There are only a few other three-storey buildings in Fort Langley.
