Provincial official asks Nanaimo council to delay vote to approve project; mediation suggested to resolve conflict
Plans to build 760 homes in Nanaimo near the Millstone River have been delayed after the Snuneymuxw First Nation said its concerns have not been properly addressed.
The provincial government stepped in and has convinced Nanaimo council to postpone a decision on the Millstone Riverfront project. It is advocating for a mediation process to resolve issues involving the First Nation, city, developer and the province.
City council had been scheduled to vote Monday on final reading for the project, located on the northwest of downtown where the former Howard Johnson hotel once stood.
