Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this report is to provide Council with background information on proposed Bylaw C-1000-17, a Land Use Bylaw text amendment.  The amendment proposes to create a new land use district, the GPL - Greenbury Planned Lot District, as a pilot project specific to the Greenbury Neighbourhood.  The proposed district is similar to the R1 - Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District but will allow for zero lot line single detached and semi-detached dwellings.  Other consequential amendments are also proposed to ensure that the necessary regulations are in place for the proposed zero lot line products.

Proposed Motion
That Council thank those in attendance for their input.
