Live reporting: Public Hearing - Dean Ave rezoning, Election Presentation

– Zoning Bylaw Amendment 15-750: Zoning Map Changes from Industrial to General Residential V District in an Area on or Near Dean Ave. – 7:10 PM

Pfeffer - read explanation letter (as noted in released agenda documents)

Nutting - this is a follow up from the 2013 Master Plan
it would for apartments or condos, the theory would be that it would be ideal for commuters

Q - on whether the land revenue would decrease with the change to residential from commercial industrial?

A - it is complicated, but not really. The revenue is embedded in the tax levy. The delta could be spread amongst the other tax payers. Realistically, the land is underutilized so it would like generate more 'new growth'
