Public hearing re: allowing taller buildings in Lake Country

A public hearing will be held Tuesday, April 16 regarding multi-storey and mixed use development on Lake Country’s Main Street.

In accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act a public hearing will be held Tuesday, April 16 at 7 p.m. in the District of Lake Country Municipal Hall, 10150 Bottom Wood Lake Rd.,  to hear representation on zoning Amendments to Bylaw 852, 2013 (Z2013-003).

This Amendment would  encourage multi-storey and mixed use development on Lake Country’s Main Street  and it is hoped that by removing the amenity fee (Table 7.1 in Zoning Bylaw 561) and providing a tax incentive (Bylaw 853) that developers will be encouraged to construct taller buildings that would help meet the District of Lake Country’s density objectives for the area.

If you believe your interest in property is affected by the application noted above, you shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the above-referenced application.

A copy of the proposed application and relevant background material may be inspected at the Municipal Office, District of Lake Country, Development Services Department (second floor),  from Wednesday, April 3 through Tuesday, April 16, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding statutory holidays.
