Select Engineering, on behalf of the landowner, has made a Land Use Bylaw Amendment application for lands in the North Central ASP area. The application, referenced as Jesperdale Stage 11, proposes amending 1.66 ha of Plan 062-6301, Block 23, Lot 1, from UR - Urban Reserve District to R1 – Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District (See Attachment B).
The landowner intends 31 parcels for single-detached residential dwellings.
Municipal Development Plan - Your Bright Future, Municipal Development Plan, 2010 – 2020 (MDP) is the City’s primary statutory plan for land use planning, and on its Figure 8 - Future Land Use Map the subject lands are indicated for Residential land use. This proposed bylaw amendment is consistent with the MDP’s land use intent.
Area Structure Plan - The North Central ASP, Bylaw C-477-03 adopted in May 2003, defines intended land uses for the subject lands on its Figure 2 – Land Use Concept as Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential. This bylaw proposes Land Use Districting consistent with the ASP's intended land use.
Land Use Bylaw - All subject lands are districted UR – Urban Reserve in Land Use Bylaw (C-824-12), and a reclassification to an appropriate land use district(s) is normally required prior to subdivision and development. Jesperdale Stage 11 area proposes R1 – Mixed Low to Medium Density Residential District that can accommodate a range of low to medium density residential dwelling types that includes Semi-Detached and Single Detached Dwellings as permitted uses.
