Public Notice is hereby given that a Public Hearing will be held on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 at 7:00pm in the gymnasium at the Sonora Community Centre located at 8505 68th Avenue, to consider the following bylaws:

Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 1230.08, 2010 is to change the Land Use Designation of the Subject Properties from “HR- High Density Residential” to “CD – Comprehensive Development”.

Phased Development Agreement Authorization Bylaw No. 1272, 2010 is to authorize a Phased Development Agreement (PDA) between the Town of Osoyoos and the Developer for the development of the Subject Properties. Some of the provisions of the PDA include:
The provisions of Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 1085.77, 2010 will be protected for 10-years in exchange for a maximum amenity contribution to the Town of $500,000

Also, $264,000 is reserved to improve the existing portion of Vedette Drive including a new road surface, curbs for better road definition, a sidewalk, street lighting and landscaping.
• The PDA can be assigned to a person who acquires fee simple title to all the subject lands, or simple title to one of the lots in the proposed subdivision, unless the proposed assignee is in the Town’s opinion in breach of any bylaw or permit dealing with the use or development of land. The assignee must agree in writing to assume all the obligations of the PDA specific to the subject land.
