Dawn Victoria Homes has applied to rezone the properties at 2360, 2364 & 2368 New Street to permit twelve 3-storey townhomes on a private roadway. The property is presently zoned H-RM2 and allows 2-storey single detached, semi-detached, triplex, fourplex and townhouse dwellings along with a 4-storey retirement home. Currently, each of the three properties has a single family home on it.

As part of the City’s Development & Infrastructure Committee meeting on July 12, city staff will hold a statutory public meeting under the Planning Act to inform members of the committee (all members of city council) about the application and to hear from delegations. City staff will not make a recommendation on the application at this meeting. A second report will be prepared, likely in the fall, and will contain a recommendation to either approve, approve with modifications or not approve the application.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
