Council gave second and third reading to a series of bylaws amending the zoning and Official Community Plan bylaws for 4816 Nixon Rd.
The bylaws change the Official Community Plan designation from Agricultural to Low Density Residential and change the zoning from A1-Agricultural Small Acreage to RSD2-Residential Large Lot.
The bylaw amendments also include a covenant prohibiting subdivision on the property unless it is in substantial conformation with an attached plan.
The bylaw changes were the subject of a public hearing.
Sharon Mansiere, a biologist who lives near the area, had concerns with the design of the development, since the red zone for habitat protection is divided into two areas instead of one continuous area.
Others in the area had concerns about parking on the cul-de-sac, by those wishing to access the park area.
