 Development Permit - TSW Project - 461 Quatsino Boulevard (last updated 13 January 2021)

Boni Maddison Architects submitted a Development Permit (DP) application on behalf of Tamitik Status of Women (TSW) for a proposed 4 storey residential building and 1 storey 24‑hour day care building located at the District-owned 461 Quatsino Boulevard Property. TSW is the project manager for the residential building which is funded by BC Housing. TSW and the District of Kitimat applied for and received capital funding from the Province of BC to construct and operate a 24-hour day care.

The Property is zoned R3-C Mixed Use Social Housing, and the Future Land Use Designation is Neighbourhood. The proposed development aligns with the current permitted uses and the future land use designation. No variances are being applied for. Kitimat Official Community Plan (OCP) outlines the Development Permit Area designation, objectives and guidelines for form and character considerations for intensive and multi-family residential projects. See, in particular, sections 4.3.7 to 4.3.10 of the Kitimat OCP and sections 488-491 of the BC Local Government Act, noting Council’s decision must “only be in accordance with the applicable [DP] guidelines”. Land use and density are not under consideration at this time.

There are three buildings proposed for the front portion of 461 Quatsino Boulevard, noting this Property may or may not also be subdivided to separate the front from the back portions of the Property; see Site Plan on the link below. This DP application includes Phase 1, which is the BC Housing residential building and Phase 2, the 24‑hour day care building, owned by the District. There is no present application for a future Phase 3, a proposed TSW office building, or for the back portion of the Property other than the overflow parking noted on the Site Plan.

The Development Permit application is provided in the links below:
