Information
Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this report is to seek Council's support for first reading of Bylaw C-1065-19, an amendment to the Municipal Development Plan 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 is in support of a proposed amendment to the East Pioneer Area Structure Plan, which has been received as Bylaw C-1066-19.

The proposed amendment is in general compliance with the policy of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan.
Proposed Motion
That first reading be given to bylaw C-1065-19 - Municipal Development Plan Amendment - Easton.
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 area of Urban Village eliminates that land use from the Municipal Development Plan maps, the proposed bylaw 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 that 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). 

Following second reading, this proposed amendment, together with Bylaw C-1066-19, will be referred to the Edmonton Metropolitan Regional Board for their review and consideration prior to Council's consideration of third reading.
Options/Alternatives
N/A
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 will be held prior to second reading of the proposed bylaw. Notification of the amendment will be advertised in the local newspaper and direct mailings will be sent to property owners within 30m of the amendment area.

The proposed amendment is required to be referred to the Edmonton Metropolitan Regional Board.
Implementation/Communication
If approved, the amended MDP would be uploaded onto the City website.
Impacts
Approval of this bylaw will remove the Urban Village land use from the Municipal Development Plan - both in policy text and the associated mapping.
