The SLRD received a zoning amendment application for District Lot 1252, 9118 Portage Road. The property is currently zoned Rural 1 (RR1) in Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Electoral Area C Zoning Bylaw 765, 2002. The property location is shown in the October staff report below (Appendix A, Schedule 1). The proposed zoning amendment is to facilitate subdivision and would see the property rezoned to Rural 2 (RR2) thereby reducing the minimum parcel size to one and a half hectares (1.5 ha).

Currie – D’Arcy corridor, subject to conformance with suitability criteria such as soil conditions, slope, geotechnical hazards and water supply. The subject property is in conformance with the suitability criteria and staff have not identified any concerns that relate to policies specific to this application.
