Delta council on Monday will discuss a report with recommendations by the Mayor’s Housing Task Force for Scott Road.
After the Hari Homes 35-storey high-rise application at Scott Road at 75A Avenue went down to defeat last fall, Mayor George Harvie announced he would establish a group to look at the corridor and come up with proposed policies to provide certainty for residents and developers where such buildings should be built.
He also spoke about the need for affordable housing choices in the community to support young families and seniors.
The task force met several times this year looking at a broad scope of housing forms, ranging from low-rise to high-rise buildings, and a mix of market, rental and affordable housing.
The resulting draft concept proposes that the Scott Road corridor be divided into three major districts.
According to staff, the overall concept will help limit expectations in terms of density and high-rise towers, while giving developers a clear idea of what direction the community is taking.
The task force also explored other issues including parking and public amenities.
Council’s meeting will take place Oct. 26 at municipal hall at 4 p.m. and can also be viewed online at www.delta.ca.
