Council delays third reading of Horstman rezoning bylaw

With a lone neighbour speaking out at the Horstman rezoning public hearing, council delayed moving the bylaws forward as per its policy.

Maurice White, the neighbour immediately south of the proposed rezoning, asked council to consider rejecting the rezoning request.

The rezoning would allow the owner of the empty lot to take advantage of changes the municipality has made to address illegal space issue rife in Whistler.

Namely, without the rezoning the lot can legally accommodate a 3,500 square foot home. With the rezoning, it can accommodate 6,000 square feet.

The proposal, outlined to council, is for a main floor of 185 square metres (2,000 square feet) and a basement of up to 231 square metres (2,500 square feet).

"This is a very significant increase that I have considerable difficulty with," said White.

"(It) leaves me feeling a little bit at odds."

As per its policy when it hears negative comments at a public hearing, council delayed consideration of third reading of the bylaws.

Municipal facility fees see slight increase

There's a growing gap between revenues and expenses at municipal facilities, in part prompting a three per cent increase in facility rental fees.

Some spots are seeing a larger increase such as the gyms at the local schools - seven per cent at Myrtle Philip and Spring Creek and 16 per cent at Whistler Secondary.

This is to align with the actual costs the municipality is required to pay to the school district.

Meanwhile, council has approved a three-month extension of rates for admissions and passes at Meadow Park.

The prices remain unchanged until April 1.
