Abstract Development has submitted a rezoning and development permit application for 3839 Quadra Street on the southeast corner of Palmer. The rezoning requested is from RS-6 (single family dwelling) to a new site-specific zone. The development permit application is to construct a 6-storey, 77 unit strata-titled apartment with underground and surface parking. Variances are also requested.
Abstract has asked us to let community members know they will be hosting a presentation on their updated application. This is happening today, August 5. One presentation happened at 1 pm and another will take place at 6 pm. If you missed the opportunity to see one of the presentations, please email Abstract to schedule a new date/time and cc QCHCA at email@example.com. Abstract will also put recordings of the information session on their websites so you can view them at a later date.
QCHCA will be responding to Saanich Planning’s request for input by August 20. If you have not already done so, please forward any comments or copies of your communications to Planning or Council to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can be sure to incorporate your thoughts into our feedback. QCHCA submitted a response to Planning based on an earlier Abstract submission.
