Attachment 2 | File: LDA17-0150 | Blatchford | July 10, 2017
BYLAW 18064 proposes to rezone the subject land from (MA1) Municipal Airport Airfield Zone to (PU) Public Utility Zone.
This rezoning facilitates the development of a District Energy Centre and an associated portion of a public plaza. The energy centre will accommodate mechanical components of the neighbourhood’s District Energy Sharing System (DESS). Approved by Council in December 2016, the Blatchford DESS will provide heating, cooling, and hot water energy services to development in the neighbourhood. Underground aspects of the DESS are treated as essential utilities that will be reviewed with servicing. However, the District Energy Centre has land use impacts similar to a substation and it requires appropriate zoning before construction can proceed.
