The City of Delta is gathering public comments on an application for a 56-unit townhouse development in East Ladner near Holly Park.
The proposal for 4726, 4740 and 4752 60B St. and 6100 Ladner Trunk Rd. includes the consolidation of three residential lots on 60B Street into one parcel. The residential units would be in 13 buildings.
Vehicular and pedestrian access is proposed from 60B Street.
The application also includes a proposed land exchange with the city to dedicate a parcel at the rear portion of 4726 and 4740 60B Street for park use in exchange for acquiring city-owned land at the rear portion of 6100 Ladner Trunk Rd. for townhouses. That city parcel is currently part of the Holly Park Reserve.
An earlier report to council notes that, subject to approval of the exchange, a realigned boundary could provide space to accommodate a potential additional field. However, it would require relocating the existing bike pump track trails. The owner proposes to provide an amenity contribution to assist with future park upgrades in an amount that is to be negotiated.
The rezoning application currently requires an Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment, so a public hearing would be required.
In addition to gathering public comments, a public information session is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 24 at the Delta City Hall foyey from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
