Information
Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this report is to seek Council's support for third reading of a technical amendment to the Safety Codes Services Permit Bylaw. This amendment will add a new definition (suite) and revise the application format to allow for future electronic submissions.

Planning and Development is bringing this amendment forward to add clarity to this bylaw regarding occupancy of new buildings and suites.

Proposed Motion
 
That third reading be given to Bylaw C-1090-19 Safety Code Services Permit Bylaw Amendment.
 
Background/Analysis
An external audit of the City of Spruce Grove Safety Codes Services Permit services was conducted by the Safety Codes Council in 2019. During this process, a potential deficiency was identified regarding the Occupancy Permit (Section 9). To correct this deficiency the term "suite" is being added to both the Definitions and Occupancy Permit sections of the bylaw.

Two additional changes are included with this amendment. The first is a change to Section 6.1 that will allow for the acceptance of various application formats, as set out in the Uniform Quality Management Plan. This change will enable the City to transition to digital applications. The second is a change to 8.4 that will enable the Safety Codes Officer to request supporting information, in addition to plans and specifications, in situations where excavation or construction is allowed to proceed before the complete building plans have been submitted.
Options/Alternatives
N/A
Consultation/Engagement
Input was received from the 2019 Safety Code Council external audit.
Implementation/Communication
Once the bylaw is given third reading, the changes indicated in the bylaw will be implemented as part of the day to day administration of the safety codes permitting.
Impacts
The revised bylaw will add clarity regarding the requirement of occupancy permits for newly developed suites.
