Contact Bill Doroshuk, Approving Officer, (email) to discuss your development idea to determine permit requirements
OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU: WE WILL WORK WITH YOU TO ENSURE YOUR PROJECT SUCCEEDS.
We will do that by:
• Providing certainty by meeting our timelines
• Having a predictable application process
• Adding value to your project by having a solution-based approach through collaboration
The first question we will ask about your development idea is: HOW? How can we make your idea happen? What do both the applicant and the Village need to do to make it happen? What issues do we need to solve to make it happen?
All we ask in return is understanding that sometimes we will ask for things or suggest ways to improve a proposal so that there’s a win-win for both a developer and the Village. Standards are important. Quality of place is important for a Canal Flats that is determined to achieve an ambitious horizon line, including: Columbia Valley industrial leader, housing innovator, and re-developer of a unique work-live Village Centre.
Sometimes a development proposal doesn’t perfectly fit with existing municipal policy. A development variance and/or zoning/bylaw amendment may be needed. Whether these are granted is at the discretion of Council or a Board appointed by Council.
