District of 100 Mile House Council will now go to a third reading for a bylaw that may allow for more housing units in 100 Mile House.

The bylaw was first presented to council October 24th, which would bring a new 4-plex to Blackstock Road in 100 Mile.

A public hearing was held on November 14th where the bylaw was met with some backlash. A petition signed by 27 local residents opposed the project.

Residents claimed increased traffic would generate safety concerns to the area. Stating that Blackstock Road is a narrow road with no sidewalks and limited lighting infrastructure among other concerns.

The third reading will take place at a regular council meeting in January.
