The Electoral Area D Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw No. 1135-2013 is currently undergoing housekeeping revisions regarding the different Development Permit Areas (DPAs) that cover some or all of the electoral area. The proposed Electoral Area D OCP Amendment Bylaw No. 1433-2016 will fix a number of identified issues in the existing DPAs where updates and additions are needed to address issuance, application, and delegation of permits. Some DPAs will be integrated into one larger DPA to reduce overlapping and redundant requirements as well as more effectively address intensive residential, commercial, and industrial projects. Some of those DPAs are in need of updating, such as the riparian protection DPA, and others could be combined together to reduce the number of potentially overlapping permits.
A public hearing for the proposed Area D OCP Amendment Bylaw No. 1433-2016 was held on Thursday June 16 at 7 pm at the District of Squamish municipal hall (37955 Second Avenue, Squamish, BC).
The proposed Electoral Area D OCP Amendment Bylaw No. 1433-2016 received first reading at the April 2016 SLRD Board meeting. It received second reading at the May 2016 SLRD Board meeting. The public hearing was held on June 16, 2016. The proposed bylaw received third reading at the June 22, 2016 SLRD Board meeting. It was then adopted at the same June meeting.
