The Public Hearing starts at 6pm. Information on how sign up and speak to City Council is available at the top of the meeting agenda page: https://council.vancouver.ca/20200123/phea20200123ag.htm. Letters can also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org regarding this rezoning.
While this item is #4 on the agenda, the first three items will likely take only a few minutes to review as those are very minor amendments. Hence 2209-2249 East Broadway will probably start with staff presentations between 6:15 and 6:45pm on Thursday, January 23rd at Vancouver City Hall (453 West 12th Avenue at Cambie). Links to the application, staff report and other resources are below.
It is worth noting that a CAC (Community Amenity Contribution) of $1,112,327 has been proposed, but this has not been directly allocated. The CAC is “to support delivery of the Grandview-Woodland Public Benefit Strategy”. As such, the CAC could be sequestered by the City for years and not released for immediate use if the application were to be approved.
The plans and other technical details for the rezoning application can be found here:
A policy report that the City is referencing is the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan. Section "6.7.3 Broadway East Multi-Family" on page 119 of the plan describes setbacks, heights and other criteria.
The Final Report of the Citizens' Assembly on the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan contained the following direction regarding this site:
"16.23: We recommend a limit of four storeys residential along Broadway from Semlin Drive to Garden Drive. We recommend a limit of three storeys residential along the north side of East 10th Avenue from Semlin Drive to Garden Drive. See 16.12 for important recommendations about limiting impact of new developments on existing residents. "
