Public Hearings November 20, 2017


Land Use Bylaw C-1260-81 / PL170661 - Approved by City Council November 20, 2017

Land Use Bylaw C-1260-81 proposes to rezone a 12.2ha parcel of land located on the west side of 92 Street, east of the railway tracks and north of 68 Avenue, legallly described as Plan 9822350 Lot 2.  The undeveloped land is currently zoned as IB - Business Industrial, which allows for a variety of low intensity industrial uses along with a number of commercial uses.  The bylaw amendment proposes to rezone the land to UR - Urban Reserve.  Within the context of the LUB, extensive agriculture is a permitted use and uses such as greenhouses, market gardens, sod farms, bee keeping, tree farms, horse holding area, and kennels are among discretionary uses allowed in the UR land use district.

In land use planning terms, compatible uses do not have significant negative impacts on each other - they are capable of harmonious coexistence.  Agricultural activities might be appropriate if the majority of the surrounding area was mostly vacant or agricultural.  The subject site is close to land that is mainly residential neighbourhoods and future commercial / light industrial development.  Activities such as extensive agriculture will require the movement of agricultural machinery to and from the site through 68 Avenue and 92 Street which may slow down traffic along two of the busiest arterial roads in the City.

The Council agenda containing the full report will be available here on Friday, November 17.


Land Use Bylaw C-1260-82 / PL170704 - Approved by City Council November 20, 2017

Land Use Bylaw C-1260-82 proposes to establish an Overlay district (Schedule I) in the Hillside neighbourhood in accordance with the policies of the recently adopted Hillside Area Redevelopment Plan.  The Hillside ARP protects and enhances the existing neighbourhood character through design standards, character controls and various development policies.  Enforcing the development standards set out in the plan is an important part of meeting the expectations of the residents.  This proposed amendment puts these approved provisions into the Land Use Bylaw so that they can be properly enforced during the development process.

Land Use Bylaw C-1260-83 / PL170706 - Approved by City Council November 20, 2017

Land Use Bylaw C-1260-83 proposes to rezone lands located at 10112 - 103 Avenue from RT-Residential Transition to RM-Medium Density Residential.  The rezoning of the 0.27 acre parcel is consistent with the pattern of redevelopment and zoning that exists in the area.  Given the size and dimensions of this property, the maximum number of allowable units for a property this size would be ten units (two more units than permissible with the existing RT zoning).  With this proposed amendment, the development rights of the subject properties will not dramatically increase from what the existing zoning already permits.
