A Committee of the Whole meeting happens tonight at Oak Bay municipal hall starting at 7 p.m..
The evening begins with a presentation by Shelley Hahn, director of Business Services for the Municipal Finance Authority of British Columbia (MFABC). She will be discussing MFABC and its role in providing infrastructure financing to local governments in the Province of British Columbia.
The committee is then set to adopt the Parks Recreation and Culture Commission Minutes.
Daniel Horan, Director of Engineering Services will then present a report on the Cadboro Bay Road Bike Lanes Project which provides staff updates and recommends a way ahead for the project.
Horan will also be presenting a report on the Asset Management Program. The report brings forward two key documents, an Asset Management Policy and an Asset Management Strategy. Both of these documents were flagged as high priority action items during the District’s consultant-led assessment of asset management practices.
The committee will then address land use applications.
There is an Uplands Siting and Design application for renovations to a single family home at 3235 Beach Drive. The proposed changes include expanding the front foyer, increasing the size of the front entry patio, constructing an accessibility ramp, and adding stairs to the south side of the existing garage. The proposed changes are modest and will be consistent with the existing design of the home.
There is a development variance permit application to continue the construction of a single family home at 2368 Dalhousie Street. A building permit was issued to construct the home, but an error in plan dimensions and truss construction has resulted in an increase to the roof height of the home. They are requesting a variance to allow for an increase in roof height.
The evening ends with Warren Jones, Director of Corporate Services, presenting a report recommending that some process changes be considered to better use the time and expertise of the Advisory Planning Commission (“APC”) and to improve communication between land use applicants, the community, APC and council.
