Request for Decision Summary
The purpose of this Report is to seek Council's second and third reading for Bylaw C-1139-20, a text amendment for adding a Direct Control District to the Land Use Bylaw and an associated redistricting. This amendment proposes to create a new land use district, DC.10 - PRESCOTT DIRECT CONTROL DISTRICT, in the Prescott Neighbourhood. This District will allow Row Housing, Street Oriented, with Secondary Suites.
Administration supports the proposed amendment.
That second reading be given to Bylaw C-1139-20 - Land Use Bylaw Amendment - Redistricting - DC.10 - Prescott District Control District.
That third reading be given to Bylaw C-1139-20 - Land Use Bylaw Amendment - Redistricting - DC.10 - Prescott District Control District.
Cantiro Communities Pioneer Ltd, has applied to create a new Direct Control District, and redistrict approximately 0.41 ha of land legally known as Plan 1820352 Block 107 Lots 1 - 6 and 8 - 17, from R1 LOW TO MEDIUM DENSITY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT to DC.10 - PRESCOTT DIRECT CONTROL DISTRICT. The subject lands are located immediately northeast of the intersection of Pioneer Road and Greenbury Boulevard.
If approved, this amendment will allow the development of 16 Row Housing, Street Oriented units with Secondary Suites. The development will provide a total of four parking stalls per unit, where one tandem stall satisfies the requirement for additional parking to support a Secondary Suite. Home Occupation as an accessory use would not be permitted in units with a Secondary Suite.
Municipal Development Plan
Your Bright Future, Municipal Development Plan, 2010 – 2020 (MDP) is the City's primary statutory plan. The proposed amendment is consistent with the land use policies of the MDP and with Figure 8 Future Land Use. The amendment is also supported by Policy 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 which support increasing residential densities while providing a variety of housing types to create diverse streetscapes in neighbourhoods and increase diversity of housing stock.
Pioneer Area Structure Plan
Pioneer Lands Area Structure Plan, Bylaw C-797-11 (ASP) was most recently amended by Bylaw C-1062-18 in April 2019. The proposed amendment is consistent with Exhibit 3 Development Concept, which identifies the subject site for low to medium density residential land uses.
Land Use Bylaw
The subject site was subdivided and redistricted to the R1 District in August 2017 with the intention of developing Row Housing, Street Oriented. This amendment and redistricting are required to allow Secondary Suites within the Row Homes, which otherwise are not permitted outside of Single Detached Dwellings in the R1 District.
This bylaw is being brought forward for second and third reading. Discussion and consideration of changes to the Bylaw may be made at second reading. Alternatively, Council may defeat the motion for second reading and choose to defeat this bylaw.
A statutory public hearing was held prior to consideration of second reading. Advertising of the public hearing satisfied the requirements of the
Municipal Government Act, and individual notice was mailed to properties within 30 m of the subject lands.
If approved, the Land Use Bylaw and map will be updated per the Bylaw's Schedule and be published on the City's website.
Approval of this bylaw will enable the development of Row Housing, Street Oriented units with Secondary Suites within the Direct Control District in the Prescott Neighbourhood.
