Zoning Amendment - Low Carbon Step Code Zoning

When: June 18 - 06:00pm - 12:00am

Where: Council Chambers and electronically

Proposed Bylaw:

District of Squamish Zoning Bylaw No. 2200, 2011, Amendment Bylaw (Low Carbon Step Code Zoning Bylaw Update) No. 3085, 2024

What's Proposed:

The District of Squamish proposes to remove the low carbon density bonus from the Zoning Bylaw. This work eliminates redundancy because Zero Carbon Step Code performance standards of EL-4 will become a requirement under the District of Squamish Building Bylaw No. 1822, 2004. All references to the low carbon incentive program, including height bonuses, will be deleted from the Zoning Bylaw.
The density bonus will be removed from the following zones:

  • Caretaker Dwellings (s. 4.3)
  • Multi-Unit Flex Units (s. 4.39)
  • Residential 1 (RS-1)
  • Residential 2 (RS-2)
  • Residential 3 (RS-3)
  • Multiple Residential 1 (RM-1)
  • Multiple Residential 2 (RM-2)
  • Multiple Residential 3 (RM-3)
  • Multiple Residential 5 (RM-5)
  • Residential Modular Home 2 (RMH-2)
  • Local Commercial (C-1)
  • Downtown Commercial (C-4)


Bylaw Readings

Consideration of first, second and third readings of the proposed Bylaw will be at the Regular Meeting of Council on June 18, 2024 at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers at Municipal Hall, 37955 Second Avenue, Squamish BC. No public hearing will be held for this application.

NO PUBLIC HEARING: In accordance with Provincial legislation, Section 464(2) of the Local Government Act, local governments are not required to hold public hearings on proposed zoning bylaw amendments if an Official Community Plan (OCP) is in effect and the zoning bylaw amendments are consistent with the OCP. This proposal meets those requirements.

A copy of the proposed bylaw and related information that has been or may be considered by Council may be inspected at Municipal Hall 37955 Second Avenue, Squamish, British Columbia, from June 6, 2024 to June 18, 2024 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding statutory holidays.
