Zoning

14.1 COPE will put a moratorium on the rezoning of industrial land in the city.

14.2 COPE will address land speculation brought on by discretionary zoning practices.

14.3 COPE will increase Development Cost Levies and Community Amenity Contributions, to properly reflect the added infrastructure and amenity costs incurred by the city.

14.4 COPE will not rezone for higher density developments in single – family residential neighbourhoods far from rapid transit stations, and will focus higher density housing construction in existing commercial areas, especially in areas within walking distance of rapid transit stations.

14.5 COPE will only rezone for higher density where the city has adopted a plan in consultation with affected communities to address the social, economic, and environmental impacts. Gretchen made edits to this point as directed by committee
