Zoning Bylaw Update

The City of Revelstoke is in the process of completing a Zoning Bylaw Comprehensive Review. The update to the Zoning Bylaw is anticipated to follow the general phases as outlined below.

Phase 1 – Initial proposed changes with Administrative Changes and Bylaw Content Changes through a repeal and replace bylaw. It is anticipated that after the completion of phase 1, staff will not commence the subsequent phases until a new OCP is adopted to ensure alignment.

Phase 2 – Review of each set of zones (residential, commercial, industrial, institutional) to update development regulations, consolidate / add zones, and review permitted uses to align with OCP. This phase will involve the creation of new zones (such as environmental zoning) to align with the updated OCP land use that will be completed. Coordination with the housing Action plan will also be considered in these amendments is anticipated that as each set of zones is reviewed, they will be brought forward as separate amending bylaws for consideration.

Phase 3 – Review of supplementary regulations to update as necessary and to implement the goals, objectives, and policies of the OCP. This will be brought forward as an amending bylaw.

Phase 4 – Review of the parking and loading regulations to update as necessary with proposed amendments to each land use section. This will be brought forward as an amending bylaw.

A Public Hearing is scheduled for November 23, 2021, 3:00 p.m. at the Revelstoke Community Center (600 Campbell Avenue) for Zoning Bylaw No. 2299. This includes updates as part of Phase 1 of the comprehensive review project.
