Sooke council wants to find the best use of Lot A, and will pay a consultant $20,000 to envision a plan for the land.
In 2014, the district bought the property located at 6671 Wadams Way, also known as Lot A, in part as a location for a new Vancouver Island Regional Library branch. Since then other groups such as the Sooke Seniors Drop-In Centre and the Affordable Seniors Housing Project have expressed interest in developing a portion of the property.
Now council hopes to determine an ideal layout of the different uses and stakeholder groups interested in Lot A, including the district’s civic interests.
A consultant is expected to be selected next month.
