Pursuant to Section 464 of the Local Government Act this is to provide notice of intent of the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District to amend the Electoral Area C Zoning Bylaw No. 765, 2002, in a manner consistent with the Electoral Area C Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 689, 1999.

Public notice is hereby given in accordance with Section 467 of the Local Government Act that a Public Hearing is being waived regarding the following bylaw:

  1. Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Electoral Area C Zoning Bylaw No. 765, 2002, Amendment Bylaw No. 1829-2023

PURPOSE OF BYLAW No. 1829-2023
The bylaw is associated with an application to amend the zoning at 1888 Sea to Sky Hwy 99 to provide for a site-specific exception to increase the gross floor area (GFA) of the food and beverage service lounge associated with a brewery. The text amendment would provide for a food and beverage service lounge with 125m2 of indoor GFA and 125m2 of outdoor GFA, as per the maximum set by the Agricultural Land Reserve Use Regulation (ALR Use Regulation). The current SLRD Area C Zoning Bylaw provides for 60m2 of indoor GFA and 60m2 of outdoor GFA. The application states that North Arm Farm holds a brewery manufacture license, and it is understood that the intention is to build a food and beverage service lounge associated with this brewery use. As Amendment Bylaw 1829-2023 is consistent with the Electoral Area C Official Community Plan, a local government is not required to hold a public hearing. The area covered by Bylaw 1829-2023 is PID: 030-277-922 LOT A DISTRICT LOT 214 LILLOOET DISTRICT PLAN EPP68874 as outlined on the map included in this notice:
