Select Engineering has applied, on behalf of the landowner, to redistrict 1.55 hectares of Plan 172 3540, Block 1, Lot 5, from UR - Urban Reserve District to R1 – Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District (See Attachment B). The developer plans to develop 25 parcels for single detached dwellings. The development agreement has been signed and the bylaw may now be considered for third reading per Corporate Policy No: 7,005 Information Requirment For Redistricting Bylaws.
Municipal Development Plan: Your Bright Future, Municipal Development Plan, 2010 – 2020 (MDP) is the City’s primary statutory land use planning document, and its Figure 8 - Future Land Use map designates the subject lands for Residential land use. This proposed Bylaw amendment is consistent with the MDP’s land use intent.
Area Structure Plan: The East Pioneer Area Structure Plan (ASP), Bylaw C-843-13, was adopted in May 2013. The Bylaw’s proposed redistricting is consistent with the subject site's Low to Medium Density Residential designation defined in the ASP.
Land Use Bylaw: The subject lands are districted UR – Urban Reserve, and the reclassification of land to another land use district is normally required before subdivision and development can occur. The proposed R1 – Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District is intended to accommodate a range of low to medium density residential dwellings. Single detached dwellings are permitted uses in the R1 District.
