Zoning, OCP and Land Use Amendments

Electoral Area B: Electoral Area B Zoning Amendment (Boulder Mountain Resort) Bylaw No. 851-13
3069 Trans Canada Hwy, West Revelstoke

The proposal is to rezone 2.3 ha of Crown land, situated east and adjacent to the existing Boulder Mountain Resort property, from RSC – Rural Resource to HC – Highway Commercial; to permit tenting sites for the camping season. The proposal also includes new tourist cabins on the west side of the Boulder Mountain Resort (BMR) property, ten in the form of park model buildings and three stick built. Two of the proposed stick built cabins are over the permitted floor area for a tourist cabin and a site specific regulation under the HC zone is proposed to allow for a maximum of two 150 m2 tourist cabins on the subject property. The bylaw also proposes to amend the definition of a tourist cabin to include park model as a permitted building type; and amend the HC and RC1 – Resort Commercial 1 zones by removing camping spaces from the additional servicing and lot size density restriction and base this density restriction on tourist cabins alone. Statutory approval from Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has been received and the Board adopted the bylaw amendment. View report.
