Information
Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this report is to provide Council with background information on proposed Bylaw C-988-17 - Deer Park Aging in Place Seniors Complex in order to undertake the statutory public hearing. The bylaw proposes to create a new direct control district, the DC1 - Deer Park Aging in Place Seniors Complex and to redistrict 2.21 ha of Plan 142 2642, Block 1, Lot 3 from UR – Urban Reserve District to DC1 – Deer Park Aging in Place Complex 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.
Proposed Motion
That those in attendance are thanked for their input.
Background/Analysis
An amendment to the Land Use Bylaw has been received to adopt a new direct control district, DC1 - Deer Park Aging in Place Seniors Complex and to redistrict 2.21 ha of Plan 142-2642, Block 1, Lot 3 from UR – Urban Reserve District to DC1 – Deer Park Aging in Place Complex District.

The subject land is currently part of a portion of land in an existing redistricting bylaw (C-943-15) being considered by Council. Under Bylaw C-943-15, the proposed change is from UR – Urban Reserve District to R2 - Mixed Medium to High Density Residential District. The proposed aging in place complex cannot be accommodated in the R2 District for a number of reasons including:
  • The implementation of new uses and parking regulations;
  • The development of public commercial uses within a residential development; and,
  • Proposed building heights of six storeys.
As a result the applicant has applied for a Direct Control (DC) District. Highlights of the proposed Direct Control district are:
  1. Three new residential uses that are distinguished by level of care provided to residents (the levels will range from independent living accommodations with minimal supports to fully supported living accommodations);
  2. Maximum height of proposed buildings is six storeys not exceeding 24.0 m;
  3. Maximum density of 200 dwellings or sleeping units per hectare;
  4. Public commercial uses integrated into the residential development; and,
  5. New parking regulations for the proposed residential uses.
The proposed commercial uses will be integrated into the development and may include Child Care Facility, Eating and Drinking Establishment, Personal Service Establishment and Retail Sales. The uses will service both residents of the development as well as be available to the greater community. The proposed DC District commercial uses mirrors existing Land Use Bylaw regulations for the Neighbourhood Retail and Service District to mitigate potential impacts to the surrounding residential community.

For a more complete description of the background and analysis, please refer to the report in the Bylaw section of the Council agenda that presents Bylaw C-988-17 for second reading.
