Approves variance permit
Council approved a development-variance permit for the subdividing of a Cranberry residential lot on Park Avenue to allow narrower width than the city’s required minimum permitted for its zoning. Councillor Rob Southcott said lots on Park Avenue are large and the variance should be granted as the city’s strategic priority encourages neighbourhood densification.
Funds first-aid room construction
Council directed city staff to proceed with construction of a new, level-two first-aid room at the city’s operation service centre/public works yard to meet WorkSafeBC requirements. Estimated cost for the project is $22,000, which will be funded from the city’s health and safety fund.
Approves six-lot subdivision
