Posted on September 18th, 2020 · Posted in General, Land Use, Letters, News

The DRA LUC met with the applicant in 2017 prior to application to discuss an earlier version of this application. The DRA has expressed ongoing concerns regarding the loopholes of the R48 Zoning Bylaw and Council’s apparent lack of interest in closing them.  

The DRA has long expressed concerns about how the R‐48 zone has been egregiously gamed far beyond current OCP maximums and the original intent of the Council that created the zone. This application facilitates the undermining of our core planning documents. It is high time for Council to support liveability Downtown and support the principles enshrined in the City’s core planning documents.
