Information
Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this report is to provide Council with background information on proposed Bylaw C-1057-18 - 2018 Land Use Bylaw Annual Review Amendments in order to undertake the statutory public hearing.  This bylaw is the annual update of Land Use Bylaw C-824-12; the update is undertaken to provide clarity to existing definitions and regulations and to correct errors and omissions. Bylaw C-1057-18 also proposes to redistrict a portion of Lot R1, Plan 632RS from P2 - Natural Areas District to PS - Public Service Institutional District to facilitate a community garden.
Proposed Motion
That Council thank those in attendance for their input.
Background/Analysis
Land Use Bylaw C-824-12 was adopted in late 2012 and implemented on January 1, 2013.  In order to provide a high quality regulatory document, the Planning and Development Department undertakes an annual review of the bylaw.  This review does not propose to make major changes to the regulations; the purpose of this update is to fine tune definitions and regulations, provide enhanced clarity and fix inconsistencies.  

For additional information, please see the RFD for second and third readings contained within the March 11, 2019 council agenda.
Options/Alternatives

Consultation/Engagement
These proposed amendments are based on issues collected through 2018 from Administration and the development and building industries and have been circulated to Administration for feedback and issue resolution.

Upon third reading of the bylaw, the amendments will be consolidated into Land Use Bylaw C-824-12 and posted on the City's website.
Impacts
