Advance Notes for the Council Meeting of January 19th, 6:00pm

6:00pm Public Hearing with regard to item 6.2 Zoning Amendment

No Delegations


6.1  OCP Amendment Bylaw 3814
To consider second reading and referrals of an amendment to the Wildstone Neighbourhood Plan in the City's Official Community Plan. The proposed amendment will:
• change the neighbourhood plan text by deleting references to a second golf course, amending
dwelling unit numbers to reflect removing the densities attributed to the subject parcel;
• remove the subject parcel (racetrack lands) from the neighbourhood plan area map schedules;
• amend the subject properties land use designation from Comprehensive Development to Low
Density Residential and Core Commercial;
• amend the proposed trail system map in the neighbourhood plan to realign the public pathways to
be consistent with the major road network and proposed utility alignments.

2nd Reading

In support of the request, the applicants have provided letters from Havaday Developments and
Realty Investments Corporation (owners of much of the Wildstone development lands) which
support the changes proposed. The letters do indicate they want to ensure that the overall integrity
of the Neighbourhood Plan is maintained including the connection through the parcel to other areas
of the development. In addition they do acknowledge that additional discussion regarding further
amendments to the neighbourhood plan will be required; however, specific items which pertain to
the currently proposed amendments include acknowledgement that a second golf course will not be
built as anticipated in the OCP and the reduction in density are noted.
