APPLICATION BY WILLIAM AND WENDY CHAU FOR REZONING 10240/10260 RUSKIN ROAD & 8371 RYAN ROAD TO RS2/B TO CREATE 5 SINGLE-FAMILY LOTS

(File Ref. No.:  12-8060-20-8590, RZ 08-403161) (REDMS No. 2832703, 292539, 2838962)

 

 

In response to queries staff advised that:

 

 

·         

three of the five lots require affordable housing/secondary suites, and if the applicant does not build them, the applicant would pay cash in lieu;

 

 

·         

if Council approves third reading of this rezoning bylaw, the neighbour’s lot would not have subdivision potential; and

 

 

·         

staff has spoken to the representatives of the owners of the adjacent lot and staff has made the owner’s representative aware of the rezoning bylaw process.

 

 

Committee made a request, and staff received it as direction, that every three or four months, Committee would receive information regarding the number of built and/or projected affordable housing units in the City.

 

 

It was moved and seconded

 

 

That Bylaw No. 8590, for the rezoning of 10240 & 10260 Ruskin Road and 8371 Ryan Road from “Single Detached (RS1/E)” to “Single Detached (RS2/B)”, be introduced and given first reading.

MANAGER’S REPORT

 

 

(1)

Councillor Steves requested that staff review the lot sizes west of No. 1 Road, between (i) Francis and Williams, and (ii) Blundell and Francis, in terms of encouraging home owners to include secondary suites in their single family residences. A comment was made that lot sizes in other areas of the City could be reviewed for the same reason.

 

 

Terry Crowe, Manager, Policy Planning, advised that policy staff could look at this issue in the context of the Official Community Plan review that is now underway.

 

 

(2)

In April, 2010, staff will report to Committee on the Land Use Contract property at 11251 Kingfisher Drive, in the Westwind neighbourhood.

 

 

Staff confirmed that the owner plans to build a 3 storey residence, a height that is not consistent with the predominant building form in the neighbourhood. 

 

 

 

ADJOURNMENT

 

 

 

It was moved and seconded

 

 

That the meeting adjourn (4:09 p.m.).
