Development Opportunities

Welcome to our community! We invite you to share in creating new business development opportunities. Our growth strategy for sustainable development strengthens the commercial core by providing zoning controls that foster a higher density and variety of housing and commercial mix. These controls encourage denser housing and commercial investment, while also reducing pressures to develop in unserviced areas.

The higher density zones near the commercial core permit multiple unit dwellings and smaller building lots that favour walking over the use of cars for short trips. They also encourage a broad range of age groups living within a short distance of the commercial area. Mixed-Use Zoning envisions living and working together in a mixture of commercial services and residential dwelling units. The adjacent Multiple Residential Zone also envisions a closeness of services to higher density residential neighbourhoods, mixed with:

  • Low-rise apartment or condominium buildings
  • Garden-style row houses
  • Semi-detached or duplex dwellings
  • Upscale single-family homes

Commercial uses in the Mixed-Use Zone examples are:

  • Auto sales
  • Bank/financial centres
  • Dwelling (above main floor)
  • Hotel/motels
  • Government offices
  • Museum/library
  • Offices
  • Restaurants
  • Retail stores
  • Service shops
