Development Bylaw Update

The Development Bylaw regulates the engineering design and construction standards relating to subdivision developments and on off-site infrastructure improvements associated with building permits. 

The current Development Bylaw No. 2070-2011 was adopted by Council in 2011.  The City will be reviewing current industry standards and will include consultation from key stakeholders including consulting engineers, land developers and city staff as part of the update process.  A request for proposal (RFP) was issued on April 5, 2019 and is listed on BC Bid. Consulting firm proposals are to be received by April 26, 2019.

This bylaw update is a 2019 Key Priority as reflected in Council’s Strategic Plan 2019-2022.  It is anticipated this bylaw update will be brought to Council  in early 2020.
