1.    Bylaw No. 2440, 2009 & Bylaw No. 2441, 2009 - Barnston View Road
      Application to Amend Land Use Bylaw No. 1250 and the Official
      Community Plan Bylaw No. 2352 to Permit Live / Work Spaces and
      Townhouses Cont’d. (3060-20-2009-05-P)

     Most Council members felt the design was workable and supported taking
     the application forward to a Public Hearing; however, their concerns
     included: lost taxes if commercial is replaced with residential; it appears to
     be crowded and small in scale (Juliet balconies); current units are too
     large to appeal to leasers - perhaps they should be sold; original vision
     was for the Village to be a tourist destination; where will parking be
     provided for the additional cars created through residential use – single
     car garages; enforcement if a live/work space is turned into a den;
     live/work is passé; like CRUs located at the front with two-storey
     apartments on top; work spaces in live/work building #3 is too close to
     Kingfisher residents; need a coffee shop included in the site; questioned
     the lease rates; need access off Fraser Way to the parking lot; two
     locations for garbage units is insufficient.

     The applicant noted that commercial space requires a busy arterial; this
     location is remote.

      MOVED by Councillor Walters, SECONDED by Councillor O’Connell,
      THAT the Committee recommends THAT Council:

     A.    Grant First and Second Readings to Bylaw No. 2441, 2009 to

           change the designation of 10973, 10974, 10995 and 10996 from
           Community Commercial to Community Commercial / Mixed Use to
           permit commercial and residential development within the same
           designation; AND

     B.    Grant First and Second Readings to Bylaw No. 2440, 2009 to
           amend Land Use Bylaw No. 1250 to permit combined live / work
           spaces and to increase the maximum number of dwelling units
           permitted within the CD-11 Zone from 456 to 481 units; AND

     C.    Authorize staff to notify surrounding property owners and schedule
           a Public Hearing for December 15, 2009; AND

     D.    Amend the original Master Development Covenant to permit the
           construction of the townhouse and live / work dwelling units and
           secure 15 parking spaces, as outlined in the report; AND




                                                                            #72799v1

      E.     Authorize staff to notify qualifying property owners that Council will

   “... this is the outdoor space that people will
   use and where small children will play. Spaces
   similar to this exist in many townhouse proj-
   ects where two clusters of town homes back
   upon each other. In this case the town homes
   back on a single storey building similar in
   scale to a backyard garage.”

PITT MEADOWS POLICY MANUAL                 POLICY NO.: F19


SUBJECT: Snow and Ice Policy               APPROVED:


POLICY STATEMENT

The City maintains a road network that provides safe and efficient transportation
corridors for our residents and businesses. This maintenance includes snow and
ice control during the winter months. Due to climatic changes this activity can
vary from very limited response to a full scale emergency.

PURPOSE

The purpose of this policy is to establish guidelines and set priorities for snow
and ice activities through our Snow and Ice Response Manual.

POLICY

The City covers a large geographic area and has an extensive road network in
relation to the population it serves. With our extensive deep ditches in the rural
areas and a number of major transportation routes for commuters and transit
vehicles it is important to prioritize our response to ensure both public safety and
resource allocation.

There are five phases of response based on climatic conditions and duration of
snow storms.

1. Phase One – De-icing
From November to March a standby roster is established utilizing Public Works
Staff that rotate on a weekly basis and carry pagers or mobile phones for
response to icing issues. The de-icing responder will commence activities when
one of the following occurs. He receives a call from the RCMP, On Duty Standby
Person, Weather Station, or Supervisor. There are three weather stations that
are set to activate the pagers at approximately 3:40 am when the temperature
reaches 1 degree Celsius. The responder reports to the works yard and applies
brine on an established route to ensure that the main thoroughfares and
designated areas are safe to travel for the public in the early morning. If the
conditions begin to deteriorate due to snowfall accumulations, the responder is to
call the On Duty Standby Person for assistance.




                                                                              #64285v1
                                      - 57 -
2. Phase Two – Low Intensity Snowstorm (1 to 10cm accumulation – 24hr
response time)
For low intensity snow storms, plowing and salting for ice and snow will occur on
all designated Snow & Ice Response Routes (see Attachments). Priority will be
given to all arterial, collector, bus routes, and school zones with crews working
24 hours a day 7 days a week to maintain priority routes, as resources permit.
Once these areas have been maintained to the acceptable standard with
available resources, our crews will begin clearing the side streets and local roads
during normal working hours. Two tandem trucks with sanders, one single axle
truck, and rubber tire backhoe would be deployed to deal with this event.

3. Phase Three – Medium Intensity Snowstorm (10 – 30 cm – 48hr response
time)
For medium intensity storms, plowing and salting for ice and snow will occur on
all designated Snow & Ice Response Routes. Priority will be given to all arterial,
collector, bus routes, and school zones with crews working 24 hours a day 7
days a week to maintain priority routes, as resources permit. It may be
necessary for the crews to remain on the major routes or return at any time
during the storm if conditions deteriorate. Once these areas have been
maintained to the acceptable standard with available resources, our crews will
begin clearing the side streets and local roads during normal working hours. Two
tandem trucks with sanders, two single axle trucks, rubber tire backhoe, grader,
and bobcat would be deployed to deal with this event.

4. Phase Four – High Intensity Snowstorm (greater than 30cm – 72hr response)
For high intensity storms, all available municipal snow clearing equipment will be
dispatched on the Snow and Ice Response Routes. Schedules and shifts will be
established on a 12 hour rotational basis involving all available crew members.
Priority will be given to all arterial, collector, bus routes, and school zones with
crews working 24 hours a day 7 days a week to maintain priority routes, as
resources permit. It may be necessary for the crews to remain on the major
routes or return at any time during the storm if conditions deteriorate. Once
these areas have been maintained to the acceptable standard with available
resources, our crews will begin clearing the side streets and local roads during
normal working hours. Three tandem trucks with sanders, two single axle trucks,
rubber tire backhoe, grader, and bobcat would be deployed to deal with this
event. It may be necessary during this phase to hire support equipment from the
private sector if available and we are unable to cope with the demand.

A customer service representative will be made available to receive calls and
answer inquiries during normal working hours.

5. Phase Five – Clean up
The clearing of bus stop landing areas, intersections, designated crosswalks, and
catch basins.




                                                                              #64285v1
                                      - 58 -
Any significant changes to the Snow and Ice Response Manual or changes that
affect the level of service described within the procedures will require Council’s
approval.

EXCLUSIONS

This policy does not apply to provincial or regional highways, or transportation
corridors located on private property. The private property owner is responsible
for maintenance and care of their respective areas.


PROCEDURES & GUIDELINES

The Snow and Ice Response Manual establishes the priorities and provides clear
direction for our response activities for consistency and clarity both for our
responders and the general public to understand how we respond to snow and
ice events.

The Manual is supplemental to this Policy and contains detailed procedures and
guidelines to be followed by staff. The procedures contained in this Manual may
be changed or updated as required by the Senior Management Team.
