Meeting History

Feb 25, 2020 4:00 PM Video Council Meeting

Mayor D. Scott declared the public hearing open at 4:03 p.m.

Amanda Haitas, Senior Manager, Planning and Development, Christopher Booth, Manager, Community Development Planning, and Such Chandhiok, Supervisor, Statutory Plans, provided an overview of the proposed redesignation of former Lot 1, Block 1, Plan 182 1793 from R1M - Mixed Form Single Detached Residential District to R1S - Single Family Small Lot Residential District, which Administration supports. A redesignation is required for consistency and to clarify what rules would apply to any developments on the lot. It was noted that several residents have requested that the lot be redesignated to Direct Control, for which Council would be required to determine uses and any specific conditions for development for that property.

Rashid Naser, spoke on behalf of the applicant, Mahmoud Naser, and provided an overview of the application to redesignate their land located at 108 Cote Bay and 9102 McPhee Street from R1M to R1S to facilitate future development of the property.

Mayor D. Scott noted that written submissions were received from Audrey Rogers and Nancy George.

Carman Sutton, resident, spoke in opposition to the proposed redesignation from R1M to R1S, and indicated that redesignating the lot to Direct Control could alleviate any issues such as flooding on neighbouring properties by imposing conditions to any developments on the property.

Paul Spring, resident, spoke in opposition to the proposed redesignation, and suggested that any issues with the lot such as drainage and access could be addressed either through the permitting process or by by redesignating the lot to Direct Control.

Audrey Rogers, resident, spoke in opposition to the proposed amendment to the Land Use Bylaw, and requested that the lot be redesignated to Director Control so that conditions could be imposed on any development of the property to deal with issues such as drainage.
