City Grants Development Permit for Salmon Arm Residential Complex – Salmon Arm Observer

0

Salmon Arm Council has voted unanimously to grant planning permission for a proposed 15-unit residential complex on property west of the Salmon Arm RCMP Detachment.

Located at 1910 11th Ave. NE., the property is zoned and designated in the city’s Official Community Plan as High Density Residence. The applicant proposes a residential development of 15 units consisting of three quadruplex buildings and one triplex, with a height of 10.98 to 11.16 meters. According to the city, 19 parking spaces are required but 45 are offered, including garages.

The applicant applied for the permit as well as a zoning variance – to reduce the minimum setback from the front parcel line from five meters to three – as well as permission to allow fencing along the east and south parcel lines up to ‘to a maximum height of eight feet.

At the March 28 public hearing for the application, the mayor and city council commented positively on the discrepancies and increased residential density, and noted that the development would be in an area close to schools and companies.

Council supported the request at the town’s development and planning meeting on Monday, March 21.

In a letter to the city, the owners of the proposed Hillside Terrace development outlined their plans for “family-friendly townhouses” intended to pay homage to the original home on the property by providing a heritage feel.

A staff report noted that the city’s design review committee supported the proposal, but with the inclusion of a screened and shared waste/recycling area, as well as additional landscaping and privacy improvements between the property in question and the neighboring RCMP detachment.

City Development Services Director Kevin Pearson said staff were happy with the proposal as amended and recommended their support.
