NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
12:00 PM on Monday, November 28th, 2016
in Council Chambers
Municipal Hall, 981 Artisan Lane, Bowen Island

Bowen Island Municipality Land Use Bylaw No. 57, 2002,
Amendment Bylaw No. 423, 2016
(Parking Cash In-lieu)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bowen Island Council is considering changes to parking regulations in the Land Use Bylaw, as they relate to properties in Snug Cove.  Current parking regulations in Bowen’s Land Use Bylaw requires a provision of a number of parking spaces per floor area for a number of land uses, generally 1 per 40m2 floor area for commercial uses in Snug Cove, and one parking space per dwelling unit.

Bowen Island Council is considering providing land owners the option of providing a cash payment of $20,000 instead of on-site parking spaces. This money would be placed into a reserve fund, and would be used to provide new and existing parking spaces and transportation infrastructure that supports walking, bicycling public transit or other forms of transportation.

MORE INFORMATION AT MUNICIPAL HALL:

Starting Thursday, November 10th, 2016, the proposed bylaw and background material may be viewed at Municipal Hall between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday (excluding statutory holidays) or on the page below.
