On July 12, residents and other potentially affected parties are also invited to attend a public hearing on the new No. 2 fire station project for the Saanich Fire Department.

The proposal to expand emergency response capabilities from the site on the southeast corner of Royal Oak and Elk Lake drives calls for a new two-storey hall able to host eight response vehicles. It also includes a related expansion of other operational elements, plus the new facility would continue to be the main training centre for the Saanich Fire Department.
