RECOMMANDATION DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de l’agriculture et des affaires rurales recommande au Conseil municipal d’approuver les modifications au Règlement de zonage no 2008-250 en vue de changer le zonage des propriétés situées aux 7510, 7527, 7550, 7564, 7574, 7577, 7586, 7601 et 7606, place Village Centre, et au 1438, voie Water’s Edge (Îlots 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 69, 70, 73 et 74, PLAN 4M-1398), comme le montre le document 1 et l’explique le document 2.
The subject areas to be rezoned are located within the Greely’s Village Commercial Centre, more specifically along Water’s Edge Way and Village Centre Place.
Purpose of the amendment
This amendment is a City initiated rezoning intended for two reasons:
VM3[324r]-h - Village Mixed Use Subzone 3 with Exception and holding.
V1E[617r] - Village Residential First Density Subzone E with Exception.
Area B and C:
Add the use “Dwelling Unit” to the “Land Uses Prohibited” list of Exception [317r] and delete the provision stating “maximum of 2 dwelling units per commercial use located in the upper storeys above any commercial use” from the “Provisions” list of Exception [317r].
Area D and E:
VM3 H(10.7) - Village Mixed Use Subzone 3 with Maximum Building Height of 10.7 metres.
VM3[XXXr] H(10.7) - Village Mixed Use Subzone 3with Exception and with Maximum Building Height of 10.7 metres.
The current zoning for the development within Greely Village Centre subdivision permits development on lots provided:
(a) with traditional septic fields; and
(b) as well as a number of lots where sanitary sewage treatment is to be provided with a wastewater treatment system that will achieve a nitrate impact no greater than 2.5 mg/l or such other limit established by the Ministry.
The provision in (b) was agreed to by the City and the developer in order to ensure that the overall nitrate impact of the development was within the guidelines issued by the Ministry of the Environment.
Certain of the lots made subject to (b) above contained permission for residential uses. The developer anticipates achieving the 2.5 mg/l criterion through the use of a communal wastewater treatment system. In the case of residential uses, Official Policy and the practice of the Ministry of the Environment is only to permit residential units on a communal system where a municipal responsibility agreement is entered into. A municipal responsibility agreement imposes upon the City the responsibility to operate the system in the case of default by the owner.
There is no policy directive from Council to enter into a municipal responsibility agreement for this site. Staff therefore explored with the developer a means by which its overall residential potential could be preserved while eliminating the permissions for residential uses where a communal system was in use.
It was the opinion of the City that there is not sufficient land within the Greely Village Centre subdivision to permit the number of lots (71) sought by the developer upon traditional septic field systems. However, in examining the land uses in the area, it was noted by the developer that there is parkland conveyed by the developer to the City as part of the approval for plans of subdivision 4M-1265, 4M-1305 and 4M-1306, all located approximately one kilometre to the west within the village of Greely. The land area within this park has not been included in the calculations for nitrate impact for any development. Staff have therefore agreed to incorporate it in the limits of the Greely Village Centre subdivision such that it will qualify for use in the nitrate calculations. This will permit an additional 11 residential lots in the subdivision and upon this basis the owner has agreed to the removal of the residential permissions for the lots to be connected to the communal wastewater treatment system.
Councillor Thompson is aware of the proposed zoning amendment and has no objections.
There are no legal/risk management implications associated with this report.
The proposed rezoning will ensure that new growth is integrated seamlessly with the established community.
