OCP and rezoning decisions coming on Monday

 

Prince George city council will be looking at changing the Official Community Plan Monday which would allow a six-storey development on O’Grady Road.

The request from Broadstreet Properties for Cantana Investments Limited, Inc. Currently the OCP allows for new buildings up to four storeys high. The change would see the OCP policy changed to read:  “The maximum building height (for mid-rise residential projects) is four storeys with the exception of areas designated Neighbourhood Centre Corridor along Queensway and at the intersection of O’Grady Road and Stringer Crescent with a maximum building height of six storeys.”

Council will also be considering a rezoning request along Tyner Boulevard. The request comes from L&M Engineering on behalf of  0753122 B.C. Ltd., Inc. No. 0753122, T.R. Projects Ltd., Inc. No. BC0729296, Cambridge Business Centres Inc., Inc. No. BC0115798, and the City of Prince George.

The applicants are seeking to rezone various parcels within the subject area from AF: Agriculture and Forestry, AG: Greenbelt and U2: Major Utilities to AF: Agriculture and Forestry, AG: Greenbelt, P1: Parks and Recreation, RS2: Single Residential, U2: Major Utilities and Z19: University Heights Neighbourhood Core.

The subject application proposes to rezone various parcels within the subject area to facilitate a mixed-use site that would combine single residential, multiple-family and commercial oriented uses. This application will also allocate land for a future recreational trail system along Tyner Boulevard, and protect an existing pond, drainage swale and steeper sloped potions.
