|An application to amend the Land Use Bylaw has been received proposing to change the C2 – Vehicle Oriented Commercial District to add Child Care Facility as a discretionary use for two (2) additional site-specific locations. These sites are both part of the Westwind Commercial area, which is currently being developed as a multi-tenant vehicle-oriented commercial area, located at 10 Westwind Drive (Lot 1, Block 7, Plan 162 0361) and 11 Westwind Drive (Lot 19, Block 2, Plan 172 1754).
Planning and Development has reviewed this bylaw amendment, and does not support it for the following reasons:
- the Child Care Facility use is not in alignment with the intent of the subject site's current C2 - Vehicle Oriented Commercial District for providing for the development of commercial uses serving vehicle traffic;
- adoption may contribute to the reduction of development space for vehicle-oriented commercial; and,
- as the site development is not yet approved, we cannot confirm how a Child Care Facility will be accommodated onsite.
For additional background information please refer to the RFD for this bylaw's second reading in the Council agenda package for this date.
