Delegations from the floor on Agenda items –

 

 

Item No. 23 – Public Consultation Results And Recommendations Regarding The Review Of The Lane Establishment And Arterial Road Redevelopment Policies

 

 

Mr. Patrick Cotter, architect for the proposed development and rezoning of properties in the area of Blundell Road and Gilbert Road, proposed an alternate design to the recommended “R1/D” zoning district, which he felt would help to reduce the concerns of Mirabel Court residents that overflow parking would increase significantly on Mirabel Court. 

 

 

He asked that Council either refer the report back to staff to staff to study the feasibility of allowing the same zoning (R1-0.6) as had been approved for the north side of Blundell Road; or alternatively, amend the recommendation which would be considered later this evening to allow his alternate solution.

 

 

Mr. Michael Tilby requested that the entire report be referred to staff for further review.  He expressed concern about the public consultation process which had taken place and the various proposals which were being considered for different areas of the neighbourhood. 

 

 

Mr. Bob Williamson, of 8166 Mirabel Court, spoke about the existing land use policies for the area which had been in place for approximately ten years, and he asked that the interests of the neighbourhood be taken into account when considering new development proposals.

 

 

Item No. 25 – Application For Rezoning - Richmond School District No. 38

 

 

Mr. Roland Hoegler referred to the City’s Agricultural Viability Strategy, which was adopted in 2003, and stated that he owned agricultural property located directly across the street from the proposed development.  He then raised a number of issues relating to the provision of a buffer to separate agriculturally zoned property with other zoning districts as required by the Strategy, and the possible non-compliance of the two properties on No. 4 Road with these buffer requirements as well as with Agricultural Land Reserve regulations.  Mr. Hoegler also questioned the reasoning of rezoning the property at 9480 Alberta Road at this time to allow for parking, even though the property had been used as a parking lot for the past two years.
