COUNCIL BRIEFS: Highway closure for Dec. 7 Candlelight Parade approved

The annual Christmas-time parade gets underway along First Avenue

This year’s Candlelight Parade will take place Friday, Dec. 7.

Mission Chamber of Commerce received support from council for the 29th annual event Monday night. Highway 7 will be closed from Murray Street to Highway 11.

This is the largest family event in Mission, said Chamber president Elyssa Lockhart, and to many, it is the start of the Christmas season. The event draws 13,000 spectators to downtown.


Bin storage allowed

A three-year temporary industrial use permit is being issued to allow a metal bin storage facility in a highway commercial zone on Mission’s waterfront.

The property is located at the corner of Durieu Street and Glasgow Avenue. There is a small office building and some machinery currently being stored on the property. No new buildings will be constructed.
