Trails committee on board with development changes

Changes to proposed gated community at Royal York Golf Course lead to public hearing Oct. 15

Changes to a proposed gated community at the Royal York Golf Course have resulted in Armstrong council rescinding, then reapproving first two readings of a zoning amendment bylaw.

In August, local realtor Patrick Place applied to the city  to rezone property at the Royal York Golf Course into a strata development.

The plan called for 46 units.

“There are still 46 units with the new changes but the applicant is now proposing 46 bareland strata lots in total, rather than 30 bareland and 16 cluster duplex units,” said Armstrong Coun. Ryan Nitchie.

Bareland strata units are where the lots are owned by individuals that share common property and are responsible for maintenance of such things as common roads.

The applicant has also called for a change to the height requirements for garages in the strata. The move will allow RVs to be stored in garages.

Park dedication of five per cent south of the proposed development is also part of the amendment change which has garnered support from Armstrong-Spallumcheen Active Communities.

“The trails committee fully supports this concept,” wrote Jill de la Salle of the Active Communities’ trails committee.

“We see it providing walking trails through a nature area for residents to enjoy.”

A public hearing on the proposed development has been set for 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 15, in Armstrong council chambers.
