Pre-application Consultation Virtual Meeting

Mattwood Homes is hosting a virtual pre-application community meeting to discuss a proposal to rezone a property at 2306 Orchard Avenue which has previously been used as a pet boarding facility and detached dwelling to establish a residential zoning which is the same as surrounding properties. A small portion of the site will be placed into an Open Space zone and dedicated to the City.

No application has been received and no decision has been made by the City. Public comments may be directed to the applicant at this time. Once a complete application has been received the public will be notified, and comments will be received by city staff.

The existing site will remain in its current condition, as shown on the attached survey plan,. There is no new development proposed with this application. The intent is to change the zoning from D (Development)” to RO3 (Residential – Low Density) and O2 (Open Space). The RO3 zone allows single family dwellings, semi-detached
dwellings and townhouse units. The form of redevelopment has not yet been determined. It Is not part of this application. If the site is to be changed at a later date, there will be a requirement for a separate application at that time.

Until such time as a future application to change the site is brought forward, this rezoning application will allow one single family dwelling on the subject property.

During the meeting, Mattwood Homes will provide an overview of the proposal and City Staff will provide an overview of the development application review process and how the public can be involved. There will also be a question and answer component about the various aspects of the proposal and the planning process. Mayor Marianne Meed Ward and Ward 5 Councillor Paul Sharman will be in attendance to listen to the discussion.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
