During a Jan. 27 meeting the Thompson-Nicola Regional District board adopted Avola Official Community Plan (OCP) and zoning amendment bylaws that will allow a towing and auto wrecking business in Avola. The amendments also realign an existing MH-1 (mobile home) zoning boundary on the property.
The board gave second and third readings to the application last November. The zoning amendment bylaw received the approval of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in December.
Also in November the board of directors requested that a covenant be placed on the subject property requiring screening of the proposed auto-wrecking site. The requested covenant was satisfactorily reviewed by the TNRD’s legal counsel and registered against the property in December.
