Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this Request for Decision is to provide Council with background information regarding Bylaw C-1019-17 – Deer Park Direct Control District and Deer Park Stage 7. This Bylaw is a consolidation of Bylaws C-943-15 and C-988-17 that have been abandoned after second reading. The Bylaw proposes to create a DC - Direct Control District for an Aging in Place Complex and to redistrict approximately 9 ha of Plan 142 2642, Block 1, Lot 3 from UR – Urban Reserve District to DC1 – Direct Control District, R1 - Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District, R2 - Mixed Medium to High Density Residential District and P1 - Parks and Recreation District.

Administration supports this amendment, which will allow for the development of an aging in place facility composed of three residential buildings with neighbourhood oriented public commercial uses, two multi-unit dwellings and lower density residential development within the Deer Park neighbourhood.

Proposed Motion
That those in attendance be thanked for their input.
Proposed Bylaw (C-1019-17) is a consolidation of two previously proposed bylaws (C-943-15 and C-988-17).  These bylaws are unable to receive third reading because of a lack of council quorum of council members present at the public hearings.  The bylaws have been consolidated for administrative efficiency and because applications have been submitted by the same developer and the subject lands are immediately adjacent to each other.

Bylaw C-1019-17 proposes to redistrict 7.12 ha of Plan 142 2642, Block 1, Lot 3 from the UR - Urban Reserve District to R1 – Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District; R2 – Mixed Medium to High Density Residential District, and; P1 – Parks and Recreation District.  It also proposes to add a new Direct Control District to the Land Use Bylaw to facilitate the development of an aging in place complex and to redistrict approximately 2.21 ha of Plan 142 2642, Block 1, Lot 3 from UR – Urban Reserve District to DC – Direct Control District. 

For additional background information, please consult the RFDs for the second reading for this bylaw in the Council agenda package for this date.
The public hearing was advertised in the November 24th and December 1, 2017 editions of the Spruce Grove Examiner. Letters of notification were also sent to adjacent landowners and the public hearing notice was posted on the City's website. 
This amendment to the Land Use Bylaw will allow for development, including an aging in place complex, multi-unit dwellings and low density residential, within the Deer Park neighbourhood.  These developments will require the extension of roads and utilities that will foster future development and benefit existing residents.
