Phase 3 Engagement Activities

The District of North Saanich is inviting you to participate in the third round of public engagement on the Tree Protection Bylaw review!

We are asking for your feedback on the alternatives that Council is considering to further refine the draft Tree Protection Bylaw.

In particular, Council requested more public feedback about:

  • Trees that can be removed under the annual allowance;
  • Requirements to replace trees removed; and
  • Permit fees.

To provide residents with a range of engagement activities to meet their varying needs, we have designed three different ways to share your feedback:

You are invited to complete an online survey at connectnorthsaanich.ca/tree-bylaw.

  • Complete by Friday, April 22. If you would prefer a paper copy of the survey, call 250-656-0781 or pick up a copy at Municipal Hall (1620 Mills Rd.).

We are hosting two (2) in-person open houses at Municipal Hall:

  • Thursday, April 7, 5 pm – 7 pm
  • Saturday, April 9, 11 am – 1 pm

We are hosting one virtual open house through Zoom:

You are welcome to attend any or all of these engagement events. If your time is limited, or you are already familiar with the Tree Protection Bylaw review, you may find it more efficient to only participate in the survey.

If you would appreciate a deeper introduction into the Tree Protection Bylaw review, and more context about how and why the Project Team is drafting a new bylaw, the open houses may be a better fit for you.

The two in-person open houses at Municipal Hall will be wheelchair-accessible, and no advance registration is required.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their smart phones, tablets, or iPads so they can fill out the survey while attending the open houses.

No matter how you choose to participate, we thank you for your interest and for sharing your thoughts. Your feedback will be presented to Council in June in an engagement summary report to help inform potential revisions to the draft Tree Protection Bylaw.
