The minutes are the first item on the agenda. Although updates on the controversial Sea Lore project are not specifically mentioned, letters voicing displeasure at the proposed sculpture have been attached.

Mayor Kevin Murdoch said he expects Sea Lore to have its own agenda item during the March 18 committee of the whole meeting.

The prospect heritage conservation area is the last item on the agenda, and carries a recommendation from staff that it goes to council and be included in the Official Community Plan.
