Council briefs

Council dealt with a variety of resolutions and reviews at the regular council meeting.

The regular meeting of municipal council was held on Monday in council chambers. All members of council except Coun. Orv. Robson and Coun. Bruce Hallquist were present.

Resolutions

Variance granted

Council approved a development variance permit for 10505 Elliott St. The permit reduces the setbacks for Strata Units 1, 4 and 5 to allow for the addition of deck roofs and an enclosure.

Amendment to proceed

Municipal staff will prepare a zoning bylaw amendment to rezone 8218 Pollock Terr. from RSD2-Residential Large Lot to RDH-Residential Duplex Housing.

Final adoption of the bylaw will be considered in conjunction with a servicing agreement for the installation of a street light and completion of the curbing around the cul-de-sac.

Sign bylaw reviewed

Council adopted the terms of reference for the review of the municipal sign bylaw.

Municipal staff may advertise for members of a sign bylaw review steering committee.

Renovations approved

Council approved the tender from H and M Excavating Ltd at the revised amount of $74,024 plus tax for the site renovations at the Summerland Fire Hall. Additional budget funds will come from the Fire Department Capital Replacement Reserve.

Cemetery review completed

 

The engineering and public works department will post the draft cemetery bylaw, the grounds person maintenance procedure manual, the information pamphlet and the consolidated exit survey on the municipal website for 30 days. The results of the final public input and the final drafts of the bylaw and documents will be brought back to council for consideration in late October.
