Boundary Change in Langford, Metchosin, and Beecher Bay

 

An historic partnership between three communities is promising to create jobs, protect valuable greenspace and secure the economic future of the Beecher Bay (Sc'ianew) First Nation.  

The boundary adjustment will see the District of Metchosin protect 370 acres of valuable greenspace while the City of Langford grows by 380 acres to allow for a business park development.  The Beecher Bay First Nation will transfer its treaty settlement lands in Metchosin for a one-third share fo the new business park.  All three jurisdictions - Langford, Metchosin and the Beecher Bay First Nation will enter into a tax sharing agreement over the business park development. See below for more information.
