OCP and Zoning Amendment - Strawberry Meadows

A public hearing is scheduled at 7pm on Monday, 7 June 2021, to consider an Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning amendment to create OCP policies for Strawberry Meadows, and to amend and expand the C10 Commercial Zone.  Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Council proceedings are held virtually on WebEx.  Instructions on how to join and participate in the public hearing is provided below. 

 

Kitimat Council is considering “Loganberry Commercial Official Community Plan and Zoning Amendment No. 1996, 2021” that would amend the OCP with regards to policies specific to Strawberry Meadows and its transition. The proposed zoning amendments revises the current C10 zone to become “C10 Rural Transition Zone”, amends the zoning map to add six properties to the C10 zone, and adds “Office” as a permitted land use.

 

The proposed text amendments to the OCP and C10 Zone are listed below or in the Public Handbook available at the District Office.

Public Comment 
Graham Pitzel - Opposed -  11 May 2021

 

J Oviatt Contracting applied to amend the C10 zone to change properties located at 182, 190, 200, 210, 220, and 230 Loganberry Avenue from G3-B Strawberry Meadows Zone to C10 Agriculture Commercial Zone and add “Office: as a permitted land use. The application triggered an OCP amendment with the opportunity to review the OCP and bring in policies that are specific to Strawberry Meadows. The intent is to establish vision and direction for Strawberry Meadows that will inform future land use decisions in the subdivision. 

 

The idea behind the Strawberry Meadows subdivision is to provide large rural residential lots that are still close to downtown.  The neighbourhood character lends itself to a rural lifestyle with lots large enough to support small agriculture, low density residential, with a strong rural character.  Kitimat’s OCP does not reference what Strawberry Meadows is intended to be or what the vision is for future land use decisions in this area. 

 

Staff have drafted a bylaw that captures the request in the application and attempts to define Strawberry Meadows and its values.  The proposed commercial zone is designated as a rural transition area and leads to the rural residential area. This designation allows limitations on the size of businesses that are allowed and ensures rural character is preserved. Zoning would limit the size of retail and the number of employees for an office.   

 

Additional information on the proposed Bylaw 1996, 2021 is available at the District of Kitimat reception desk, 270 City Centre, 8:30a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. Public comment period is between 4 May 2021 until 7 June 2021.

 Development Variance Permit - 121 Liard Street

Owner of 121 Liard Street submitted a development variance permit (DVP) to increase maximum accessory building height from 3m to 3.53m for a shed that has already been constructed. The property is zoned R1-B One Family – Detached or Semi-Detached. Kitimat Municipal Code (KMC) requires accessory structures that are within 1m or more of side or rear yard to not exceed 3m at mid span.

The property owner at the time of construction was advised from the District’s Building Inspector that the shed does not meet zoning requirements for height and was built without a building permit. Since construction of the shed began, the property owners have changed, and the new owners want to keep the shed at its current height. Although the shed was built without a building permit, the shed does meet the BC Building Code.
