Chester: Council Looks To Clear Way For Health Centre

Chester council will hold a public hearing tonight to discuss a zoning issue for the "Our Health Centre" project. Councillors will look at changing some wording in their policies to allow for the construction of the $6 million dollar facility in Shoreham Village. The move will help clear the way for the area's proposed medical centre. They will also need to amend their zoning bylaw. The community group behind the project is in the midst of a major fundraising initiative to help pay for the facility. The medical centre would feature enough space for six doctors offices, examining rooms and blood collection. It's hopes the doors to the facility will be open sometime next year. Tonight's meeting is at 6 o'clock at the municipal office in Chester.
