MEETING: March 16, 2021 TO: Mayor and Council
FROM: Jason Gow, Acting Director of Planning Services SUBJECT: Zoning Amendment 105 – 7042 Cranberry Street
That City of Powell River Zoning Bylaw 2100, 2006, Amendment Bylaw 2655, 2021, be read for a first and second time; and,
That City of Powell River Zoning Bylaw 2100, 2006, Amendment Bylaw 2655, 2021, proceed to Public Hearing and that staff be directed to schedule the Public Hearing and give notice in accordance with Section 466 of the Local Government Act.
CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER’S COMMENTS:
Russell Brewer, CAO
To consider an application to amend the zoning of a property located at 7042 Cranberry Street.
The subject property is on Cranberry Street just east of Lindsay Park. The property is a hooked parcel with lands on either side of Cranberry Street. Attached to this report as Appendices A and B are a locator map and an orthographic image of the subject property. The portion of parcel on the waterside of the road is zoned NT (Institutions) as it housed a preschool and daycare operation for many years. This facility closed in March 2020 and the owner of the property would like to convert the existing building into a residence. To achieve this, they have applied to rezone the NT portion of the parcel to R2 (Single and Two Family Residential).
Processing this type of development application is not specifically addressed in the City of Powell River Strategic Plan 2020-2022 but instead falls into the regular service provided by the City.
ZA 105 – 7042 Cranberry Street 2 of 2 March 16, 2021
Sustainable Official Community Plan (SOCP)
In the SOCP, the subject property has a land use designation of Suburban Residential. The intent of this designation is to accommodate residential uses, predominately in the form of single-family dwellings, in association with secondary suites, agricultural uses, home-based businesses, institutional uses, parks and green space, and utilities.
City of Powell River Zoning Bylaw 2100, 2006 (Zoning Bylaw)
The subject property is split-zoned with the upper portion zoned A1 (Small Lot Rural Residential Zone) and the lakeside portion zoned NT (Institutions).
ANALYSIS AND IMPACT:
The proposal would see these lands rezoned to R2. As this would be in keeping with the adjacent properties on the waterside of Cranberry Street, staff supports the application.
Attached to this report as Appendix C is draft City of Powell River Zoning Bylaw 2100, 2006, Amendment Bylaw 2655, 2021, for review.
Staff are not aware of any significant financial impact as a result of a zoning change to this property.
COMMUNICATIONS AND ENGAGEMENT:
All amendments to the Zoning Bylaw must undertake a public information process as prescribed by the Local Government Act. This includes concurrent advertisements in a local paper, placement of a development proposal sign on the subject property and a statutory Public Hearing.
1. That City of Powell River Zoning Bylaw 2100, 2006, Amendment Bylaw 2655, 2021, be read for a first and second time; and,
That City of Powell River Zoning Bylaw 2100, 2006, Amendment Bylaw 2655, 2021, proceed to Public Hearing and that staff be directed to schedule the Public Hearing and give notice in accordance with Section 466 of the Local Government Act; or,
2. That Council provides an alternate direction to staff; or, 3. That Council not endorse this application.
