Planning applications received by the City in the River Valley Capitol Hill neighbourhood.


13210 Buena Vista Road NW

A planning application (map) has been received for a property at 13210 Buena Vista Road NW within the area of Buena Vista/Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park.

The application proposes to rezone Buena Vista/Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park, which houses the historic Yorath House at the south end of the site, from Metropolitan Recreation Zone (A) to River Valley Activity Node Zone (AN). A small area at the northwest portion of the site is also proposed to be rezoned from Single Detached Residential Zone (RF1) to AN.

The Buena Vista/Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park Master Plan indicates that the Yorath House should be protected and used for distinct programming and as a public rental space. The proposed uses in the River Valley Activity Node Zone (AN) reflect the intent of the Master Plan. The AN zone will also recognize the protection area at the north end of the park, in conformance with the Master Plan.
