    I am concerned about the abrupt physical transition and massing of the building immediately beside the roadway. Is there a better set back for pedestrians along 33rd? I am also concerned with the increased traffic, crime and view/shade issues from the building and its residents. Will there be enforcement of temporary and short term housing in the building? What about the additional school capacity and amenities required for its residents? Has public access to QE park been integrated into the design for residents who walk through this area?

    • This site is located along E 35th Ave. The sidewalk along this street will be rebuilt and widened for pedestrians. There will also be private patios screened with planting at the ground level. The distance from the edge of the side walk to the building face is approximately 12 ft. (3.6 m).
    • One of the key principles of the Little Mountain Adjacent Area Rezoning Policy is connecting and integrating the area with the surrounding community and Queen Elizabeth Park through permeable site plans, pedestrian pathways, and improved connections with existing streets. This site also has public access along the south side of the property, adjacent with 5185 Main St (currently a development permit application).
    • This building falls within the catchment area of General Brock Elementary School. Based on the Vancouver School Board’s 2019 Long Range Facilities Plan, the 2017/2018 capacity was calculated at 57% in 2017-2018, and projected to decrease to 54% in 2022 and 52% in 2027. Local amenities will be delivered through the redevelopment of the Little Mountain Site as outlined in the Policy Statement. This includes a new Little Mountain Neighbourhood House, Childcare, and public spaces.
    • All tenants in existing secondary rental (rented houses, basement suites, etc.) may be eligible for protection and compensation under the Tenant Relocation and Protection Policy. Developers are required to disclose the tenancies on-site. Through the rezoning process, housing staff are assigned to review the draft tenant relocation plan and verify eligibility and compliance. 
    • Your concerns about traffic, shade, crime, and views have been noted. The applicant is required to submit a shadow study, to illustrate the impacts of shadowing of the proposed site.
