About This Project
The new LUB addresses these deficiencies, stakeholder concerns, local trends, best practices and the City’s MDP. To complete the project, the team met with the public, City Departments, local developers, builders and businesses, and the Chamber of Commerce to gain an understanding of how the current LUB was or was not working. Stakeholder events included four public open houses and two rounds of interviews.
• Pre-approval notices soliciting feedback will be sent to adjacent owners;
• To increase efficiency the Development Officer will make decisions on all permits;
• Development Officers may vary a wider range of development regulations;
• Sign regulations are added (including billboard and temporary signs);
• Adult Entertainment, Massage Services and Medical Marihuana regulations were added;
• Prepared regulations for affordable residential typologies;
• Highway commercial allows limited residential and regulations focused on aesthetics; and
• Live/work opportunities, increased building heights and residential density, and reduced parking regulations were introduced into downtown districts.
At the request of the Client, the project team also prepared a Direct Control District for a convention centre, hotel and casino, and a Subdivision and Development Appeal Board Bylaw.
