The City of Nanaimo has informed the NOCA Board that planning staff have received formal applications to redevelop the property at 388 Machleary Street. Staff are reviewing the information submitted in support of the joint Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Bylaw Amendment applications. As the initial review of the application continues by city staff, NOCA can expect to receive a referral request in the weeks ahead.
City staff also tell us that the formal amendment review process, will likely begin in the fall of this year (2018). Prior to the meeting of the city’s Community Planning and Development Committee, the developers are required to host an open house to provide the community with more information about the development proposal. City staff anticipate the developer’s open house will also likely be held in the fall of this year.

The old city is a unique neighbourhood – unlike any other in Nanaimo. It houses the significant majority of the older homes and historical character in the city – a city that was one of the first established in the province in the 1800s. Most of the rest of Nanaimo was built in the post-war era, especially since the 1970s. Our neighbourhood is complex and diverse, with homes ranging from very low cost to highly desirable renovated heritage homes. Our residents value the character of the old city and feel a sense of stewardship towards its importance.
The Nanaimo Old City Association (NOCA) is a not-for-profit association and is recognized by the City of Nanaimo as the neighbourhood association for the old city neighbourhood.
