Marine Rezoning, May 12 2021
The Squamish Chamber has been active in discussions around marine rezoning, including meetings with District of Squamish staff, letters to Council, participation in surveys and speaking at the public hearing in 2021.
The Squamish Chamber would like to ensure marine rezoning does not negatively impact existing businesses that are core to our community (e.g. the forestry industry) or create barriers for future possibilities (e.g. tourism and other marine based businesses). Increased consultation, needs assessments and a further review of zoning is required to meet the diverse needs of businesses, stakeholders and residents. “
