Road space could be sold

Public hearing for Industrial Road area changes, Oct. 15

The District of Kent is considering the sale of unused road space to local business.

Agassiz All Storage has expressed an interest in purchasing the unused road space that runs along their current lot on Industrial Road.

Council gave three readings to their Highway Closure and Dedication Removal Bylaw on Monday night, and set a public hearing for Tues., Oct. 15 at 6 pm., in council chambers.

The road dedication was initially established during the development of Industrial Road, to help facilitate future road connection. Council previously confirmed that the road is no longer required.
