New bylaw to set zoning for all of Area B

Draft zoning bylaw for Area B has been sent to the board of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District for first reading.

A draft zoning bylaw for Area B, the rural area around Revelstoke, has been sent to the board of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District for first reading.

The proposed bylaw would establish land-use regulations for the rural regions surrounding Revelstoke, which stretches from Mica in the north to Trout Lake in the south, and Glacier National Park in the east to Eagle Pass in the west. Currently only rural Revelstoke is covered by a zoning bylaw; the new bylaw would replace the currently bylaw and extend it to cover the entire Area B.

The bylaw sets land-use and building regulations for everything from parcel sizes to set backs to the number of rooms allowed in a bed & breakfast (three). It also maps out current land uses in the region and sets out new zoning options, such as rural resource, three types of residential, comprehensive development, highway commercial, industrial, park and more.

The draft will go to the CSRD Board of Directors for first reading at its meeting on July 19. After that, it will be sent to the Area B Advisory Planning Commission and then for public hearings in Revelstoke and Trout Lake on Tuesday, Aug. 7.

Once initial amendments are made, it will go to First Nations and agency review, following which it will go back to the board of the CSRD for second reading.
