There was one presentation from the owner and a real estate salesperson from Rivers Crossing (formerly Shadow Mountain Development). The presentation spoke in favour of increasing the permissible secondary suite size to the generally acceptable percentage of floor area from 25% to 40% in new builds on the Rivers Crossing property. The reason presented was to enable buyers to accommodate aging parents in their home. This proposed bylaw, number 3810, later passed during the Council meeting.
All bylaws presented at this meeting were carried. They can be read beginning:
Item 8.4 Urban Deer Management was deferred.
Item 8.7 To inform Council of the vulnerability of the City's Motor Control Center (MCC) for the Irrigation Pump Station, and request funding for design so construction can start this winter season on total
replacement. This half a million dollar item was dicussed and initial design funding carried.
All recommendations carried and can be read beginning:
Several reports including the wall at 11th Ave. and 2nd St intersection, library and Contingency fund beginning:
A petition was received concerning opposition to a proposed Emergency and Transitional Housing facility. This was referred to administration for more information as to precise concerns and zoning.
It was agreed to give Community Connections $1800 from the remaining contingency fund for the purpose of supporting a First Night Celebration at Western Financial Place.
Only approximately $3000 now remain in this fund which originally had a maximum $500 recommended single amount for donation.
Councillor Warner enquired about the Engineer report on the Elizabeth Lake drainage system. CAO Staudt said that the report had been received from Urban Systems and would be available to the public sometime this week on the City webpage.
