Try, try again

City staff discovered a bylaw number assigned to an approved amendment had already been utilized by another bylaw.

At first if you don’t succeed, try again.

At the meeting on Sept. 9 council gave first and second reading to bylaw 2556—a bylaw that amends the zoning bylaw to allow Warren Hamm’s MA-1 zoned parcel to have up to two recreation cabins.

City staff brought the recommendation to rescind forward after they discovered the bylaw number assigned to the amendment had already been utilized by another bylaw.

Based upon legal advice, it was recommended council strike first and second readings and re-do first and second readings with the correct bylaw number.

Council passed first and second reading on the bylaw on Sept. 23 and had set a public hearing for Oct. 15 in council chambers to hear information on the matter

The proposal by Hamm—an upper Red Mountain Ski Resort resident—to add a recreational cabin to his 20-acre property would amend the MA-1 zone (the skiing terrain of Red Mountain) but raises a number of servicing and building code issues.

An additional recreational cabin allowed on one parcel in the zone facilitated rental lodging, dual ownership and subsequent subdivision, former city planner Mike Maturo had cautioned, scenarios not supported by the city’s Official Community Plan.

He recommended leaving the density at one recreation cabin per parent parcel.
