Heritage Revitalization Agreement

Please be aware, beginning July 2, 2019, the City will be recovering mail costs from the applicant for all new applications that require a public notification in the form of letters being mailed.

A Heritage Revitalization Agreement (HRA) is authorized by City Council, through a bylaw, to protect a heritage building or property.

A HRA is intended to address a unique situation that sets out conditions that apply to a specific property and is mutually beneficial between the owner and the City. The terms of the agreement supersede local government zoning regulations and the City may vary land use, density, setbacks and other regulations through the HRA Bylaw. In exchange, the owner agrees to restore, preserve and protect the building and/or property.

Bylaw Third Reading Extensions

When an application has received a third reading from Council, the applicant has one year from the date it was given third reading to complete the application requirements and obtain Council’s final adoption of the related bylaw amendment.  If a situation arises in which the applicant has not met all of the requirements within the one year time frame, the bylaw amendment will lapse and will be of no force or effect.  However, should the applicant wish to continue to proceed with their project, they may submit a request to extend this one-year period between third and final adoption. 

Development Application Signs

All Applicants pursuing Development Applications are required to install a development proposal sign on the development site.  For more information please visit Development Application Signs.

Public Information Meetings

From time to time, developers host public information meetings at the request of the Planning & Development Department or on their own initiative. The main purpose of a public information meeting is to provide information about a proposed complex development project to the residents in the area and to obtain feedback so that issues and concerns can be identified and addressed early in the development application  process. When holding public information meetings, the proponents should observe and comply with the following guideline document.
