Mayor and council approved conditional rezoning of the Sikh Temple property on Ash Street.

The zoning will change from institutional to aggregate care, which will allow for the combination of daycare and counselling services on the site.

Nechako Valley Community Services Society (NVCSS) is looking at purchasing the property to create a “family hub” where families can access the different services in one location.

A covenant would be applied to the property upon the completion of the sale which will limit the use of the facility to those described by NVCSS and will not allow for the use of the building to include a transition house.
