Village of Pemberton Public Hearing Notice
Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 883, 2020
Tuesday May 26, 2020, 9 am, Via Electronic Meeting (Zoom Webinar ID: 853 6574 7599)

What is Zoning Amendment (RTA-1 Text Amendment) Bylaw No. 883, 2020 about?
Bylaw No. 883, 2020 amends Zoning Bylaw No. 832, 2018 Residential Townhouse Amenity 1, Sunstone (RTA-1) Zone to permit the construction of duplex dwellings in multi-family developments.

What is the significance of the proposed Bylaw No. 883, 2020?
The RTA-1 zone is one of several zones created specifically to implement the Sunstone project. The zone permits the development of single-detached small lots, or multi-family townhouse developments. Multi-family units consist of three or more units in a single building. The application has been made as part of Sunstone Ridge Development Ltd.’s efforts to develop the Elevate at Sunstone project. To date, the Applicant has commenced construction of the first townhouse building; however, through the sales and marketing phase, the Applicant reports there is limited demand for two-bedroom interior townhouse units. The proponents submit however that there seems to be greater market demand for three bedroom, end units. The purpose of the amendment is to facilitate reconsideration of the Elevate at Sunstone project to amend the RTA-1 zone to facilitate the construction of a duplex multi-family project.If approved, the proposed amendment would not be specific to Elevate at Sunstone, but would apply to all lands currently zoned RTA-1 in Zoning Bylaw No. 832, 2018 or any future parcels which may be zoned RTA-1.
