Public Hearing

When: September 03 - 06:00pm

Where: Municipal Hall - 37955 Second Avenue

Official Community Plan Bylaw and Zoning Bylaw amendments to secure the existing number of residential rental units in perpetuity. This amendment would protect the existing number of rental units identified on the properties below, to ensure that if redevelopment occurred on the parcel, the same number of rental units would need to be provided.

This is a District led initiative to rezone the affected lands, to limit their form of tenure to residential rental. Residential rental tenure would apply to the existing number of purpose-built rental units on each of the subject properties. The intention of this amendment is to ensure that these existing rental units remain rental units indefinitely. In the event of redevelopment, an equivalent number of rental units would be required.

An accompanying Official Community Plan amendment includes policy to recognize the impacts on development potential for landowners affected by the Zoning Bylaw Amendment.
