Why should it have any chance of being objected to? It is what the City is asking for in its planning documents. Eliminate this barrier.

The other thing is that it takes up all administrations time, committees time, the developers time, and the developers money as these applications cost. It's a pointless step in a long, drawn out process of getting something built.

What is the cost of an application for something like this? I can't see it being anymore than $20 - 25.

He needed a conditional use and 2 variances, first variance is $408, second (and each after if it was more than 2) is $43. Conditional Use is $408. Because the variances had a site plan review clause (Condition 3 on the variance, quote "That final plans, showing the location and details of the fencing for the second storey open deck, shall be submitted to the Director of Planning, Property and Development for approval prior to the issuance of any development or building permits; and thereafter shall be maintained to the satisfaction of the Director of Planning, Property and Development."), the review will cost an additional $108.

So that's almost a grand.

EDIT: It is a requirement for the developer to pay for all the time it takes for the planner/zoning officer/whoever did the reports to actually do the reports. It's time consuming to write these reports.

Now you are taking real money and I agree with you that its excessive cost for a straight forward application.

Those were the charges for single and two family residence... If they called this mixed use it would be even more, so my dollars might be a bit off.

The charges for variances and conditional uses is crazy... And it's something we are trying to promote on these corridors.

EDIT: And it seems that this is a C2 zone, so it's not the R1 and R2 Variances costs, it's the other one... So that's actually $815 for 1st variance, $161 for each additional, $1175 for conditional use. Design review stays the same.

So, $2259 for just the variances and conditional use, again for something we are actively promoting on these corridors.

EDIT2: Well, it seems that a "designated employee" is allowed to decrease the cost of a variance for certain types (as determined by them), so it's possible they only paid $550/$42 for the variances. No decrease allowed in conditional use.

What's been happening on St. Anne's and St. Mary's is great (as you've pointed out before). Anything to speed up, simplify, and promote the process is ideal.

Any one get a 1st hand look at the Alexander Docks and the damage caused by the Spring Melt?

I haven't launched a boat on the Red since 2012. Can't tell how bad it is.

I just feel for the RRR operator and the end to his season. Let him finish the year off and hopefully improve the docking facility at the location...soon... Well actually River access in general.

Workers in Western Canada set for biggest raises next year

By Jamie Sturgeon Global News

Average wages in the oil and gas sector are expected to advance 3.8 per cent in 2015, the fastest clip in the country.
Canadian Press
If you’re fortunate enough to be gainfully employed in Calgary, Saskatoon or Regina, next year could well bring with it a comfortable pay hike.

Alberta and Saskatchewan, whose resource-based economies are leaving the rest of the country in the dust, again top an annual monitor of wage growth across provinces and cities.
