Town of Sidney Enters into Land Swap Agreement with VAA

Sidney, B.C.; The Town of Sidney has entered into a lease agreement with the Victoria Airport Authority (VAA) for Town-owned lands located on the west side of Highway 17 (see map below). The Town is proposing to lease the lands to VAA for $1.00 in exchange for lands located south of the Skateboard Park and north of the Town Works Yard, which are of greater strategic value to the Town over the term of the lease. The Term of both leases will be from 2015 to 2077.  It is important to note that the lease of Town-owned lands to the VAA on the west side of the highway in no way influences Council’s future decision regarding a potential OCP and zoning amendment associated with any future commercial development.
