Information
Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this report is to seek Council's support for third reading of Bylaw C-1065-19, an amendment to the Municipal Development Plan (MDP) that proposes to remove the Urban Village land use from both the text of the document and the associated mapping. The proposed Municipal Development Plan amendment supports the proposed amendment to the East Pioneer Area Structure Plan, Bylaw C-1066-19.

The proposed amendment is in general compliance with the policy of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan.  Administration supports this proposed MDP amendment.

Proposed Motion
That third reading be given to bylaw C-1065-19 - Municipal Development Plan Amendment - Easton, as amended.
Background/Analysis
This amendment to the Municipal Development Plan is being brought forward in support of Bylaw C-1066-19, an amendment to the East Pioneer Area Structure Plan for the Easton neighbourhood. The primary purpose of this amendment is to remove the identified Urban Village land use from the subject lands (SE 2-53-27-W4).  As the removal of this future Urban Village area eliminates that land use from the Municipal Development Plan maps, the proposed bylaw also deletes all reference to the Urban Village land use from both the text of the bylaw and the associated mapping. 

In addition to removing the identified Urban Village land use, Bylaw C-1065-19 also updates the future land uses in the subject area to reflect those proposed in the associated East Pioneer Area Structure Plan amendment. If both bylaws are approved, the Municipal Development Plan mapping will properly reflect the land uses of the amended East Pioneer Area Structure Plan (including the proposed 11 ha vehicle oriented commercial site and revised open spaces).

Please note that the maps in Schedule A of Bylaw C-1065-19 have been amended since second reading. It was noted that the base mapping did not properly correspond to the approved figures of the MDP (Bylaw C-960-16). The figures have been adjusted and the areas outside the proposed amendment are now consistent with the approved figures. There were no additional changes made to the bylaw.

Consultation/Engagement
A public open house was held by the applicant on February 5, 2019 at the Golden Age Club. A more in-depth review of this open house is provided in the report accompanying Bylaw C-1066-19.

A public hearing was held on November 12, 2019. Notification of the amendment was advertised in the local newspaper and direct mailings were sent to property owners within 30m of the amendment area.

The proposed amendment was referred to the Edmonton Metropolitan Regional Board prior to consideration of third reading. Edmonton Metropolitan Regional Board Administration expressed no concern with this amendment.

Following second reading, proposed Bylaw C-1066-19 was referred to the Edmonton Metropolitan Regional Board for their review and consideration prior to Council's consideration of third reading. As this bylaw (C-1065-19) is supportive to Bylaw C-1066-19, third reading was not previously considered.

On December 3 the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board gave Administrative approval to proposed Bylaw C-1066-19. The identified appeal period ended on January 2, 2020 and that bylaw is now coming forward to Council for consideration of third reading. These two associated bylaws (C-1065-19 and C-1066-19) can now both be considered by Council.

Impacts
