A staff report, including a review of public input and survey responses, will be considered at this meeting by the committee.

The report will be available online at as of today (Jan. 27). Those wishing to provide correspondence for the agenda can provide it to Corporate Services by 3 p.m. on Feb. 2. Correspondence can be submitted via email to or hard copy to Municipal Hall, 2167 Oak Bay Ave., Victoria B.C., V8R 1G2.
