SACKVILLE, N.B. – A rezoning request will come before town council in March that would allow for a new daycare to open up on King Street.

Erica Allen has put forward an application to rezone a piece of property at 55 King Street from Urban Residential 1 (R1) to Institutional for the purpose of operating a daycare that could take in up to 26 children.

A public hearing for the rezoning request has been set for March 10 at 7 p.m. in town council chambers and will provide residents the opportunity to raise any objections, concerns or support over the proposed development.

Council put forward a resolution during its monthly meeting Jan. 13 to refer the rezoning request to the Tantramar Planning Review and Adjustment Committee for its views.   Staff from the town’s public works and engineering department, RCMP and the fire department will also be consulted on the file.

Coun. Bill Evans said the resolution does not mean council is approving the request, it simply gets the process rolling on this application.

“We will get staff opinion and advice and have a public hearing to hear the case for or against it,” he said.

Organizations: Tantramar Planning Review and Adjustment Committee, RCMP

Geographic location: King Street, 55 King Street

    I think that this would be a prefect opportunity for parents of Sackville and area to have a small center which will have close relationships with teachers-parents-children, providing a calming home setting for children to learn and develop. Love it!
