Effective: June 10, 2019

Bylaw 42P2019 amends the Land Use Bylaw to include two new categories of uses as follows:

 

  1. Pop-Up Uses: These uses have low to moderate impact on surrounding areas and can pop up in a commercial or industrial space for 4 consecutive days without a development permit; and

  2. Interim Uses: These uses have low impact on surrounding areas and can occupy a vacant commercial space for up to six (6) months without a development permit.

Administration is also proposing to combine the two uses of Market and Market – Minor as a way to simplify and promote a business that supports local retail, food production and manufacturing and allow it in more land use districts.

 

This initiative responds to the needs of the short-term business through a modified approval process without jeopardizing the integrity of our approval process for permanent businesses.
