The Town of Ladysmith intends to sell our property at 900 Russell Road in order to invest in the future of our community.
We have received questions about the property, its original intention, and future park development. We have also become aware that there are different opinions about the history of the property.
To help set the record straight, we have prepared a fact sheet about the property. Below are a few of the key pieces of information. Or, you can click here for the full Fact Sheet, and find a map here. Please call or e-mail City Hall (250.245.6400 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
The only condition on the sale was that Council approval was required. This condition was removed one week after the purchase offer.
At the time the Town purchased it, the property was zoned R-1 (Suburban Residential). It is still zoned R-1 (called Single Dwelling Residential since the Zoning Bylaw was updated in 2014.) The property has never been zoned as parkland, nor was it ever established as a park by the Town.
