    A large number of trees on the site are presently protected by orange fencing. Will any of these trees be retained? Counting these trees, new trees and street trees fronting the development, what percentage of the site will be covered with tree canopy, at maturity? (Delta's 40% canopy goal is in keeping with research about how to reduce the worst impacts of climate change in cities.)

    Deborah Jones asked 8 months ago

    Hello!  Thanks for taking the time to visit our engagement page and for asking your question.

    Staff is continually working with applicants to find opportunities for additional tree retention and tree planting.  A copy of the proposed tree management plan is provided in the documents on the engagement page.  The applicant’s proposal does not currently show any on-site trees being retained; however, comments from the virtual engagement will be forwarded to the applicant for their consideration before designs and details are finalized for Council's consideration.

    Regards,

    Jimmy

    Why are some drawings showing dimensions in Imperial while other show the dimensions in metric measurements. That makes it very confusing to read the drawings.

    TJ Weidema asked 9 months ago

    Hello, our apologies for the confusion.  The drawings presented on the engagement page are preliminary sets.  As we move forward with the application we will be working towards getting consistently dimensioned drawings for Council and Public Hearing.

    With the entrance to this complex being on 72A, how is the increased traffic going to be controlled? Currently 72A/115A/73A is a traffic calmed street with children ever present. The speed bumps installed on this corridor have NEVER deterred the speeders and during rush hours, this corridor is extremely busy with commuters trying to avoid 72nd Avenue. How will this be changed to "calm" this residential neighborhood's streets??

    Sylvia Dawes asked 9 months ago

    Hello!  Thanks for taking the time to visit our engagement page and for asking your questions.  

    A traffic impact study has been provided by the applicant and is currently being reviewed by staff.  The study would determine the number of trips generated by the development and whether any road improvements to surrounding streets are necessary.  Recommendations from the study would be presented to Council when a staff report is prepared for their consideration.  Delta’s policies and bylaws require driveway access to be located away from 72 Avenue.  

    Delta also has plans for road improvements along the 72 Avenue corridor that would be completed separately from the proposed townhouse development.  More details can be found here.

    Kind regards,

    Jimmy

    Will these be rental units?

    greenshade asked 9 months ago

    Hello!  Thanks for taking the time to visit our engagement page and for asking your question.  

    The units would be offered for sale and there are no secured rentals as currently proposed.

    What is meant by “form and character”? Is 141 parking spots for 64 units a bylaw requirement? This sounds like an excessive amount of parking; parking lot space that could be used for more units.

    darrendemelo asked 9 months ago

    Hello!  Thanks for taking the time to visit our engagement page and for asking your question.  

    Form and character refers to site layout as well as the design of buildings and landscaping.  A development permit is required to ensure the proposed development is consistent with design guidelines and standards that the City has in place for the 72 Avenue corridor. 

    The Delta Zoning Bylaw requires a minimum of 141 off-street parking spaces for this development.  2 parking spaces for each townhouse unit, plus additional visitor parking at a rate of 0.2 spaces/unit. 

    Hope this clarifies.  

    Kind regards,

    Jimmy
