Correction

In last week’s issue the Westerly News incorrectly reported that Tofino’s municipal council had passed an amendment to the district’s sign control bylaw that would allow business owners to apply for a regular sign permit to build a new freestanding sign while not also having to apply for a development permit.

In fact, there was a resolution of Council to authorize the preparation of an amendment to the OCP (the development permit areas in the OCP) regarding sign control. This has not been adopted by Council – Council just asked staff to do the work to prepare the amendment. There were NO amendments to the sign control bylaw at the meeting.
