Upcoming OCP Amendment Bylaw (May/June 2021)
On March 29, 2021, the Land Use and Planning Committee passed a series of resolutions directing staff to prepare revisions to the Official Community Plan (OCP) bylaw, as part of the third and final phase of the City’s OCP Review. These resolutions were made following consideration of the results for the Building Heights outside the Town Centre survey.
On May 10, 2021, Council adopted an amendment to the Zoning Bylaw for the Town Centre Commercial / Residential Zone (CR-1), after a public hearing was held on April 19, 2021.
Staff are preparing an OCP amendment bylaw that would implement the direction from the March 29, 2021 LUPC meeting as well as reflecting the new Town Centre CR-1 zoning. This OCP amendment bylaw is expected to be presented to Council for consideration on May 31, 2021, and if given first and second reading, a public hearing for the bylaw could be scheduled as early as June 21, 2021.
Consultation has concluded
