18 Date: October 17, 2017 Report to: Mayor and Council From: Kevin Crook, Chief Administrative Officer Subject: Zoning Amendment Pajama Holdings Ltd. RECOMMENDATION That Council give first and second reading to Zoning Bylaw Amendment No. 31, Bylaw No. 982, 2017 ; REPORT Purpose To consider a proposal to rezone a parcel of land, as requested by Jayce Mann, and to give the zoning amendment bylaw first readings. Background Pajama Holdings Ltd. has requested rezoning of eight parcels located between Douglas Avenue and 2 nd Avenue East from C-2 Commercial Highway to I-1 Industrial Service. These eight parcels are among two rows of six lots (total of 12) that are separated by an abandoned alleyway. Four of the lots are already zoned I-1, while the remainder are zoned C-2. The proposed use for all of the parcels is warehousing and storage, and eventual office space, for J-Mann Electric. Mr. Mann is also interested in acquiring the alleyway mentioned above, and eventually consolidating 12 lots into one or two lots. If Council chooses to give first readings to this bylaw, a public hearing will be scheduled. All of the lots are, and will continue to be, part of a development permit area. FINANCIAL/PROGRAM IMPLICATIONS None. RELATIONSHIP TO THE OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN/STRATEGIC PLAN The OCP designation for all of the lots is Light Industrial, so this proposal conforms to the Official Community Plan.
