Project History

In March 2017, the Town received an Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Amendment application to request permission to build 100 units in apartment buildings.

In July 2017, Council requested that the developer revise the design to reduce the scope and fit within the OCP.

In December 2017, the Town received revised plans, within the scope of the OCP.

In June 2018, Council adopted the Bylaw to permit an 87–unit residential development as shown in the site plan below.

In November 2018, staff approved this Interim Stormwater Management Plan for the site. A final plan will be approved with site servicing plans.

Q1 2019: Council finalized the rezoning of 464 Eaglecrest Drive and have issued the necessary Development Permits. The developer is currently working on preparing their submission for building permit for the upper segment of the development. Staff are working with the developer on the plans for frontage works required by bylaw.

Below is a table of process and staff reports pertaining to the development application.
