The purpose of this public hearing is to consider the re-designation of Lots 21 though 26, Block 51, Plan NEP557, District Lot 549, located at 602 Slocan Avenue, from the current Official Community Plan designation of Environmental Reserve to Commercial and from the current zoning of E1 – Environmental Reserve, to C1 – Core Commercial. 602 Slocan Avenue is bordered to the west by Core Commercial zoning and to the East and North by Single and Two-Family Residential zoning.
The proposed bylaw amendments will allow for the development of the properties located at 602 Slocan Avenue (identified on the map below and currently housing New Denver’s recycling depot), pending relocation of the adjacent Village of New Denver well and pumphouse. The purpose of the proposed amendments is to accommodate a 10-Unit Affordable Housing development.
