== Vive le CANADA ===

PM's statement June 1st to mark Canadian Armed Forces Day: “...This year’s celebration is especially significant given that 2014 marks the end of Canada’s military mission in Afghanistan, -- wch was recognized by a National Day of Honour on May 9, 2014 -- the Centennial of the start of the First World War, the 75th anniversary of the start of the Second World War, and the 70th anniversary of D-Day, all important milestones in our country’s history. CanadaÖs contributions to these conflicts generated immense international respect for our country and helped define and shape Canada as it is known today...."

=== from the EDITOR'S DESK ===

+ 2013 DWV Salaries

As you know, listed in WVM09 (p36 in this issue). It did have the note that the Fire Dept figs are a bit misleading b/c back pay from a union settlement is included. I shd hv pointed out that staff pay is ~80% of the DWV operating budget. BC teachers must weep when reading what some staff earn here with less education (but longer ofc hours). Your views on the 2013 Financial Report requested and will be on the June 16 ccl mtg.

Benefits: When I was on Ccl (end of '80s/early '90s) benefits were 5 - 7%, a few years later they were 12 - 15%, and then in this century, 17 - 19%. Guess what they are now? 22 - 26%! and only the taxable portion (v roughly 5%) is included in the remuneration amt shown, so add the rest, about 20% more, onto the amt listed.

+ Cmnty Day Parade

So pleased it was a sunny day and my 102-yr-old mother cd sit in the back of my convertible and wave. She's just amazing. Every day is a gift. This Sunday, however, will be a sad day, Father's Day. He was more than five years younger so we thought mother wd go first. Nope. He suddenly, without warning, died 20 years ago while G and I were away on way to UNIXExpo in New York where we had a booth for our company.

- Cmnty Day -- The annual party to celebrate ourselves, our cmnty, this great place we live in. And the sun came out to party with us. A day to enjoy the parade, meet the folks in all the groups, sip some cool ones on the beach with friends. Maybe have a few beergarden nights during the summer (but wider selection, though champagne isn't often connected with sand.....)?

+ Congratulations to Ccl: Whyte Lake Park will be the largest park in WV, almost 2x the size of Lighthouse Park!

+ Contradictions? {pls help me to understand}

Honour Killings: Killing a daughter b/c she's dishonoured the family (if seen with or marries an 'unapproved' man, for example). Doesn't that damage the honour of the family more than the daughter's actions?

Islamic Wars: In Iraq now, Sunni and Shia killing each other brutally. Some imams have promoted jihad (holy war, killing others even other Muslims, eg Salafists) when the msg in the Koran, the msg of Islam, we're told, is PEACE.

+ Inexplicable

and SOOOO sad. What reason cd someone have to shoot three mounties?

We owe so much to our police forces for protecting us -- our sense of comfort as we go about our daily lives without fear.

I spent some time studying at the University of Moncton -- a quiet town. Such a shock. + Bd of Variance

do check out if application near you. This body approves non-compliance with our bylaws based on "undue hardship" but when asked what it was respond they don't have to say or state. Some have told me they go to the Bd b/c easier to get what they want than going to Ccl. See the variances being asked for at the June 18 BoV mtg.

+ Cmnty Amenity Calculations [CACs]

Considerable discussion re CACs during Evelyn/Onni's Parcel 3 density transfer (see May 26 Item X below). Some months ago Ccl said they'd hold a Cmte of the Whole dedicate to the subject of CACs. Not yet. Now it seems the prov is going to bring in a definition that may result in devprs not having to pay any of the increased value from upzoning. Something to watch carefully. I lobbied for over 15 years to get Ccl to recognize there was such a thing as Uplift and another five years for CBs [Cmnty Benefits], so that devprs wd pay us 75% of the value. Good deal, no? And the cmnty got millions to add to our budget.

Let's work hard not to lose that!

=== WVPD === Bait cars + !

Bait cars are everywhere. Two suspected offenders learned that the hard way in West Vancouver early Sunday morning. {Police nabbed 'em!}

Bait cars deployed police in partnership with IMPACT are now equipped with traceable bait property to capture offenders committing Theft-from-Automobile offences.

Bait property will look no different than any other property thieves may find in vehicles. The difference is it can be tracked and monitored by police.

According to IMPACT, the top ten items stolen from vehicles include smart phones, personal electronics such as laptops, tools, credit cards and ID, stereo equipment, cash and change, car parts, garage door openers, sunglasses, and keys.

WV Police encourage all residents and visitors to the District to avoid leaving valuables in unattended vehicles.

Excerpts from Don Cayo's article (based on the Fraser Institute Report) pC3 in VSun June 11:

- The numbers vary from municipality to municipality, but the 21 local govts in MetroV spent, on average and adjusted for inflation, 27 per cent per citizen more in a decade.

- "Municipal spending in MetroV increased from $1.9B in 2002 to $3.3B in 2012," the report says.

This works out to a 74.2% increase, more than double the 34.1% combined rate of inflation and popn growth.

- Roughly 30% of the $1.4B of extra money spent ea yr -- $429M -- went to protective services such as police, fire depts.

- TransLink, has its own revenue-raising capability so its budget, now about $1.5B a year, isn't included in the figures.

- Interestingly, the report notes that M revenue has grown even faster than spending -- from $2.5B to $4.6B, or 86.2%, over the decade studied.

June 3 - 22 -- Picturesque North Shore

Sandrine Pelissier, inspired by the BC landscape, recently completed a series of forest, seascapes, and cityscapes painted in watermedia (watercolour, acrylic, inks). Though her work could be described at somewhat realistic, there is often a touch of the unreal in the form of splashes of paint or added designs that emphasize the subjective quality of perception. This creates a link between the landscape’s reality and the one imagined by the artist.

very interesting article; from the beginning (Scott Bellis):

We used to have to take turns sleeping there overnight for security. We had insurance for the equipment we had borrowed, but the insurance was only valid if someone was on-site 24 hours a day. So we had a little schedule, and I would have spent four or five nights sleeping there over the summer. We would just roll out a sleeping bag on-stage,Ł Bellis remembers, after rehearsal for a 25th-anniversary return of the play. The well-known Bard actor, who plays the donkey-head-wearing Bottom this time around, is sitting at SFU Woodward’s and laughing to himself at the DIY nature of it all. “I used to run out at intermission and sell T-shirts at the gift shopö in costume. Yeah, we used to have to go out and sell Coke and all that.Ł...

On April 7, Ccl set the date for the PH. The statutory notice of PH was published in the NSh News on May 18 and May 21, 2014 and notices were mailed to property owners / occupants within the notification area. The MClk will note written submissions received for the May 26 PH.

Sop: questions b/c I always keep an open mind

looked at second beautiful drawing there and along Keith Rd not a sgl tel wire; how misleading is that? That's my comment

opp to neg with Onni so there won't be tel wires/poles?

LB: Onni did do conduit undergrounding when proj was approved

It's a pricey thing to do and that has not been concluded

Sop: my second Q: any increase in rental housing? if more/change, they're going to have to give something up

LB: moved two units, transferred others; those conversations not yet held

Sop: will save till later

[7:12] Mayor: just so everybody's clear, no increase in number of units

LB: Correct

ML: on p7 of your report re vehicle access, confused re traffic report, says wdn't "marginally' change, so, major?

think a numerical change (grammatical?) change -- useful to correct?

LB: our understanding is that same no of units, minor change

ML: think you've missed my point

"wd not marginally change" -- that's grammatically incorrect; maybe we can just revisit and correct that

re CACs now or later?

Mayor: now

ML: reading summary re CACs, two things jump out at me

- this relies heavily on "hard construction costs provided by the devpr" and - [later p 183 of our pkg], refers to having a quantity surveyor; is that a cost needed? need to that or benefit to Dist?

Sokol: re subject of a CAC, the first test is, is there actually new devt, is there new density; in this case the answer is no; therefore, no CACs

if there had been an increase in density or in dwelling units, staff wd then look at an Uplift report [7:14]

staff's position on this issue is: whether there is an increase or decrease in value or whether you're costing out the costs of construction doesn't really matter, the fact of the matter there is no increase in the number of units, there is no increase in the demands put on public services and therefore a CAC is not appropriate

{An associate commented on this: Right conclusion, wrong rationale. That may be staff’s view but thatÖs not what the official Council policy states. CACs are recommended whenever there is an increase in land value from the change in density. Since there is no net increase in land value (and, in fact, the appraiser suggests the land value is decreased by this change), there is no CAC due (correct conculsion). Number of units is not mentioned anywhere in the policy and is a totally irrelevant consideration (staff's incorrect reasoning).}

ML: the logic in my mind if potentially wrong to begin with it's still wrong now but we don't care b/c we're not changing anything.

Guess what I'm asking is if not for this, shd we in future be looking for some basis on wch to calculate CACs that do not rely quite so much on info provided by the devpr?

Sokol: staff looking at a new way to calculate CACs

prov has come out with new guidelines; they very strongly recommend not base CACs on Uplift, not an accurate way of measuring the impact of a development...

not what a CAC is supposed to address

Mayor: guess cclr asking what the method is for CACs -- Mr Sokol, your dept coming forward with a report?

Sokol: probably early or sometime next year, recommending some new approaches or changes to how we collect CACs

CC: my policy support for a better CAC policy for the District

shd not be charging CACs only if cost to cmnty

Ccl, by controlling the zoning, controls the value of land and value determined in large part of what can be built on it

if we're creating value, if creating $2 - 3M of value by upzoning a property; entirely legitimate to ask that that upzoning be shared amongst the cmnty

b/c the cmnty not just immediate effects of devt, there's traffic, infrastructure, parks, library...

CAC policy needs to be revised, clarified; I take issue with staff's interpretation of what new devt is b/c the reality is there is new devt on the parcel that Onni is seeking to devp now

They're adding four floors and eight units to that parcel

It's only if you look at the devt as a whole it's netted out; that's a false way of looking at it

...it's NEW devt; to say no uplift for transfers within a parcel is a complete total fallacy

no appraiser will tell you that; ten units at bottom, worth X; transfer from bottom no view to top and view, worth way more than X; maybe double, triple

switching, moving, potentially and that's what's occurring here

said my piece and don't want to beat up on the devpr here

they'll do what's in their financial best interest moving these units b/c view/value

as a cmnty (re CACs) we're not getting any of that value; our own fault, our policy is not well thought out; we're not implementing it; don't for a moment believe the appraisal report from the appraiser, think we're missing an opp

know I'm in the minority here; so will leave; said my piece

{G's comment: Craig is spot on when he says it's "entirely legitimate to ask that upzoning be shared". His comments about transfers within a parcel, while correct, are not relevant: (a) that is not what this zoning application is about, and (b) the transfer being approved is from a more valuable (i.e. better view) parcel to a less valuable (poorer view) locn.}


Sokol: believe the applicant is here

E Hughes: brief presentation

SLIDES picture of Parcel one built and occupied; Parcel Two

drawing of proposed Parcel three

R Ciccozzi: SLIDES of designs

seven-storey on west, five- on east

parkade; introducing green roofs in Parcel 3; public walkway [7:28]; sustainable design; high LEED Silver

pass to Peter for landscape

Peter Kreuk: landscape architect; walk down to PkR; heavy natural planting

CC: know we meet with Mr Hughes

improvement, &&&

colleague asked about accomm on the NSh and I sent them to your site

like only one storey from Keith

as a result -- one more bldg's worth at Keith-- frontage larger than under previous?

Ans: I wd think so

consolidation changed slightly; more frontage on Keith

CC: a little more blockage of view

are you having to remove more of the mature trees than before?

Ans: unf that is the case

yes, looked to buy?, xxx, terracing, and xxx [7:34]; looked at xxx

less [sic] retaining walls but will let Peter

Peter K: four trees between Parcel 2 and 3

opp to build large wall; felt better to remove and put in new trees, better fit slope; village walk

2.4 to 1 slope from top to bottom; thought that was xxx

CC: encourage you to put as many trees in; won't grow in in my/our lifetime; plant mature trees

{maybe one day we'll be able to do more than 'encourage'!}

Peter? unf xxx

NG: my questions were related to slope and trees

if approved not a sgl existing tree left!

Ans: correct; 8 to 1 tree replacement; 29 western cedars [7:37]

NG: given steepness and coverage at 50% and whole site denuded for a year or more; whatever planted not v much

who deals with the liability if rain washes [out]? is it our liability if we approve?

Sokol: make sure sediment and erosion control is in place before start

something we keep an eye on; observed during construction

on site; an off-site storm water line was installed under TWay, not only from this site but other parts of nbhd

capacity vastly increased

Sop: exec summary from Burgess Cawley; shows resid land value before and after zoning

before $4M and after $5.4M; Parcel 8 $36M down to $32M

why enter into a design shift, down in one area and up in another?

when we get there, go up, won't have a decline at all

Ans: 18 mos ago started, costs of construction of the site had increased

until into construction drawings and estimate costs; based on precedence of Parcel 2

Sop: based on your own words, come out as a gain b/c of density shift

but out of this,, being partners of WV, nothing shd suffer outside of your devt

tel lines left undecided

better views at top, not so well {good?} below

wdn't it be fair game; good devt ppl will flock to; xxx

shift some money to WV to &&&

Mayor: doubt the person in front of you has the right to answer that question

{some chuckles}

Ans: increasing units xxx

easier to xxx more funds, xxx

if we came in with number of units -- try to maximize at top of site and more retaining walls at bottom

getting 7th level penthouse units

Sop: CAC $3.8M is that put away somewhere? why not undergrounding wires? where's money?

Mayor: it's in the bank; undergrounding a Ccl decision

MB: &&&

Ans: xxx measurement -- 80ft from the lane; eastward ht getting lower; Parcel 8 is six storeys

in front of Parcel 3 is Parcel 7, probably six storeys max

MB: so you added units to the bottom? am trying to get a visual

Cclr Cam assumed view better from top, is that right?

Ans: likely we wd hv at top -- going from 17 to 23 now, density at bottom

MB: Parcel #

Ans: across the street

MB: not my question -- wch wd be the better views? apt blocking the bottom; new units in cluster or apt bldg?

Ans: tough question to answer

Mayor: the view is in the eye of the beholder


to the public now


Barb Hunter: wanted to say how attractive but disappointed tel poles still there

$350K just for the study or implementation?

RF: $350K contrib fom Onni, was to study; various open houses, Option A (as much included)

signif progress toward

BH: so public not on the hook for traffic.....

RF: a number of features, eg some medians -- those will be paid for through Onni

the ped or multi-use walkway feature, still have to do some work on the detailed design

possible wd require addl capital

want to see how much can do and what remaining

Mayor: anyone else wishing to speak {3x}? to Cclr Cam

B Rueger and Julie Davidson both spoke:

Dog walker brings up images -- we do not do this and this [SLIDES]

most one- or two-person small biz; professional means licensed, permission re trails [7:57]

bills about $2M a year

off-leash hikes; pick up up to six dogs, hour and half -- clean them up before dropping them off

hike five days a week -- year round

do more than walk dogs; help and advice on just about anything to do with their pets

security when away from homes

unofficial tour guides on the trails; hand out trail maps b/c no one knows can get them down here

emergency communication network, can email or text ev dogwalker on NSh, happy to do for any owner

pick up bottles; pick up the dog poop left on the weekend

debris from xxx parties


SLIDE re complaints [8:01] {stats low}

not a great source of complaints to the Dist

A serious occupation? yes! SLIDE, not a hobby

Do not damage the trails, dogs small and workers vary the trails

we're up ev day and can see trails and bridges falling apart; love to see more work done

half with licences in WV have in NV
NV has frozen [licences?]

Out-of-town companies invading? not true

wd like Dist staff to take us seriously when we tell them what we do

earlier, one of your bylaw ofcrs offered to come but it rained and he backed out

think about posting signage the same way NV does; you know when you're in an area approved; public know

more poop bags -- public don't realize

tickled that the bridges on Ballantyne Trail are being [fixed]

hope also to Baden Powell Trail -- SLIDE of xxx Bridge -- dangerous [8:05]

look at Bylaw Enforcement; play by rules, will be asked

those without, won't hear; staff say can do nothing about unlicensed companies

a loose dog is dangerous; a long-standing complaint

we police ourselves; best trail-users we can be

want to work with your staff; procedures that work for everybody

any questions, don't hesitate, ask us

Mayor: do notice staff writing down things, so hope your comments on trails will meet with some action

Sop: wonderful group and what you do

saw dogs out here while in to get permits and they didn't even move!

two things: licence, permitted to use the trails, also a xxx

Development Variance Permit No. 13-058 (3376 & 3378 Radcliffe Avenue)

April 16, 2014


Written Submissions received up to and including May 15, 2014:





May 1, 2014



Sokol: James Allan, Cmnty Planner will make presentation

looking for three variances

setback; a combined sideyard; waterfront grade line/retaining walls project beyond 45 degree line


condition of the DVT to remove X??

CC: removal of the patio encroachments -- hard to tell scale from here

more than 15ft into foreshore, improve public access

45° angle -- why do they need that? why not move it back and keep it within the 45? why need variance?

JA: we do try to work with prop owners; we do have the power re removal

been there for a long time, they want to enjoy them

"existing ranges? and foreshore encroachments"


CC: app? what owners doing; thin edge of the wedge

but if move back wdn't signif; ft or 2ft?

JA: up to three ft

CC: we do have rules for a reason; do xxx cd hv our policy retained

small thing

can see side yards but not those

Brad Lamoureux: architect for the project

great deal of study; clients look to make certain concessions to cmnty at large

removed the two garages up the street -- many on street

set back garage 30 ft; house set back further, ~40ft

trading a garden at front; gives cmnty a garden [view] and house lowered

pressure on house toward water, taking up land cd enjoy

area small and to lose 3ft wd diminish utility; have as much of that as possible

CC: how big is the beach terrace?

BL: don't have figs

CC: need to know -- 3ft out of ten or out of 20?

BL: out of ... wd lose up to half

CC: not conforming, the whole area?

BL: creates the terrace;

CC: doesn't look like 3ft out of 6 -- I'm no mathematician

Sop: three-car garage -- much blasting?

BL: until we demolish won't know

with help of Bill Chapman

not blasting for garage, for the house

ML: how long is this house going to take to build?

BL: Bradner Homes, about 24 mos

ML: familiar, b/c I live on a lane -- how are ppl going to get by?

can't park in yr own nbrhd b/c of construction cars

see list; energuide rating of 75 -- is it good or bad?

they don't want to do anything about light fixtures; no interest in a waste management plan -- no

garage &&&

not a tree preservation plan presented

Sokol: traffic mgmt plan is a reqmt, project by proj re where workers to park

look at other projs underway at time to minimize impact

maybe parking off-site when permit applied for

the checklist something we ask them to do

try to encourage applicants to do more than what's in the DP

perhaps architect cd ans more

BL: reason we didn't file -- anything of value taken off will be returned

tried to [8:35]

comprehensive landscape plan nothing short of amazing

energy rating -- hadn't given a lot of consideration; willing to talk to owner; 75 a min, we'd want to 80 or 90

TP: don't think highlight the

xxx checklist enough

no invasive plant species, thank you for that

always been talk of taking the energy guide up to 80; think we shd be pushing for higher energy guide ratings; wd be good if you wd commit to this -- wd be helpful to have an audit to see if we're meeting...

for staff, what's in the public foreshore

Brad?: erosion, immediately to west

and other nbr to install natural intertidal features

removing those scallps?; foreshore work in that area

protection of infrastructure (eg sewer); foreshore there to protect

TP: looking at sea-level rise, you're comfortable for future &&&

Brent: by leaving the high level mark, the grassland landscaping well above sea level

NG: my thunder also stolen by Cclr Lewis; no, kidding, have other question

have letters from ppl concerned

increased accessibility along the foreshore by the public

BL: yes

NG: ....debris, etd

BL: bonding needed for any blasting; pre-blast report

did speak to one nbr; wd not be normal for one person to indemnify another but xxx insurance, blasting itself

NG: rumour six cars

BL: crawl space cd put three more

NG: 5300sf

BL: with basement 7300sf

NG: not xxx; energy

not support; wd like to see at least 80 to 90 range

Mayor: CC

{to start motion}

Mayor: oh, public


I Rozier: I'm on 33

notwithstanding the 45

point is if you look at the variances being returned to foreshore [8:43]

accretion; offering to take out; a lot of ground being returned; a lot more natural accretion

Mayor: so you support the application?

Ans: yes

CC: I'll try again

THAT all written and oral submissions be received for information.


CC: when rehabilitation, access maintained to West Bay

my kids go there; make sure

MOTION: the proposed DVP, wch wd allow for construction of a new house with garage, be approved.

10. West Vancouver Child and Family Hub Update PowerPoint presentation to be provided.

A Beckett (with L Kent): {listed the places now included}

ev two years kindergarten teachers

Early Devt Instrument SLIDES as of 2013 five ways; EDI

[8:56] introduce a Kindness Room; description and SLIDE

Heart-Mind Proj and workplan, Storyhouse Family Drop-in, and Properties Family Hub

Mayor; unf didn't increase by one b/c my daughter missed her due date

[9:01] :-)

MB: why cognitive up and compassion kindness not?

Ans: families busy; not caring for others

Sop: extremely imp work

don't know what goes on behind closed doors... xxx ... or something..... 13, 14, still going through trauma of something that happened earlier

I remember at three years old picking blackberries but distraught b/c I cdn't find the lid -- wanted to give something to her {his mother}

we are a leading edge

sorry hv to do my thing ... xxx; wrong one?


MOTION: the report dated May 5, from the Mgr of Cmnty Devt, Youth, and Families, be received for information.

Mayor: carries unanimously

and hearing about Cclr Sop's blackberry-picking

11. North Shore Children's Charter (File: 2635-01)


  1. The NSh Chn’s Charter be endorsed by Ccl as a framework for guiding decisions related to child- and family-friendly programming in WV; and that

  2. The endorsement be communicated to mbrs of the Early Yrs and Middle Years Planning Tables.

AM: xxx

2011 endorsed charter and this charter aligns with it

Children's Charter "right to play" -- in par over 300 chn a product of that

Arleta Beckett and [L Kent] wd be happy to answer any questions

MB: will there be an opp to mount a copy of the charter mounted?

AM: yes, Hall and elsewhere

CC: [re my kids] fear when putting them to bed, will tell me 'right to play'

how translate into meaningful?

Arleta: xxx these felt wd most resonate with chn

art projs; give chn a voice in their own way

these rights are part of our xxx in the cmnty ctr; early years and middle years tables


12. Intersection at 21st Street and Queens Avenue (File: 1785-01) Information to be provided.

Mayor: information item; number of letters about this so put on agenda

RF: [9:10] at your request providing this oral

want to follow up on petition from public

Dist has invested consid resources re ......re traffic-calming, ..., curbs, sidewalks,...... Fulton

also provided some alternated pockets of parking

also provided cat's eyes for road alignment in the dark

interception capacity at 21st and Queens

had been looking at a roundabout soln; and has installed quite a few in the M

SLIDE of one adjacent to Gleneagles School

but space constraints and topography, designers just cd not come up with one safe at this locn

SLIDE from Google maps

at 21st, drops down; drop off in eastern direction as well

isn't enough room with grading or prop acquisition

public -- why not like further on down Fulton?

but it's quite small; circle not large enough to slow down enough we went and put these speedbumps

to do a proper roundabout having the grades or space

staff did traffic analysis -- four-way stop upgraded to lights during morning and aft periods

disconnect between staff and public -- lights don't nec mean no traffic-calming

May 7 half a dozen solutions raised re traffic-calming in addn to traffic signal

staff in process of evaluating suggestions, some not itemized in the summary

staff and consultant evaluating suggestions

walk through, incorp as many features as possible

roundabout to traffic signal -- can go through that analysis so residents can see how to signal

21st St Residents' Assn -- maybe a mtg in early July

Mayor: so no final decisions made?

RF: recomm between roundabout and signals, definitely sign being recommended, however traffic-calming can be introduced

Mayor: the existing four-way stop not going to remain

[9:17] RF: xxx; Rodgers subdiv and Chippendale

Sop: reduce speeds going up or down 21st?

RF: am

one -- if lights, really targeting am and pm peaks, rest of day continuous flashing so then like a four-way stop

Sop: Fulton and 15th need to do more than a four-way stop
RF: traffic sign warranted at this point

Sop: compatible with approaching cars like flashing at Inglewood

RF: a lot these days; there are lightboards -- above a certain speed it strobes; can incorp into the design

CC: seems to me present situation works fairly well

hear, seems to facilitate peak flows in shorter time

inconsistent with traffic-calming -- seems four-way stop does slow down

case for the need for this doesn't work for now

xxx no need to spend money or change it [9:22]

RF: not to get through more quickly, {instead} more effectively

more straight or right turn -- introduce clarity, separate turn right or straight

in aft a long queue going up, v difficult for ppl to leave their prop b/c of queue

{[9:23] gives other reasons}

CC: when you make these changes you change use

who?: build more hwys, more ppl drive; faster to get through route, more travel that way

in a sense up to staff

TP: are residents happy with this four-way stop?

RF: perception that a four-way stop wd slow the traffic, residents wd prefer to a traffic signal

but one benefit for signal is that residents cd get out more easily

four-way stop more calming, residents more comfortable with

Mayor: decision?

RF: not in 2014 Budget

but try to do some underground work this year, water mains; try to do first

if a traffic signal goes in not planned till following year, work with residents and in budget

Mayor: to be crystal clear, it has not been approved by Ccl

RF: not in 2014 budget

MB: any way to address these issues? southbound righthand lane

lane a possibility?

RF: safety audit done between ICBC

{[9:27] gives more info}

entire corridor down to Queens

benefit cd coordinate it with the off-ramp; to make more efficient; not right turns, behaviour of entire corridor


13. Coach House Implementation Bylaws (File: 1610-20-4771/4772) (On-Table)

PowerPoint presentation to be provided.

Mayor: first reading so we can go to a PH June 16?

SM: right

SLIDES -- been working on this for the past 18 mos; opp to move from examination to implementation

Recap the process [9:29]

no increase in density; ...; so we're at Phase three

Bylaws: rental coach houses

ownership coach houses in two categories; xxx and heritage listing

DP area

Key objectives: successful integration and reduce nbrhd impacts

SLIDE: Draft Zoning Regs -- not permitted sec stes or duplex

10% of lot area; xxx and no sep title

Ccl supported the idea of an annual review

over summer; report re # of applicns, public support, etc

shd we incentivize coach houses?

detached option

our approach conservative compared with Vancouver; will look at incentivize; streamline, xxx

might need to upgrade water services; worked with Engg where undersized mains, etc

assess viability of coach house

no restrictions re basements but that may be reviewed after the first round xxx [9:37]

{We still haven't plugged that loophole (esp on sloped lots) of not counting basements in FAR calculations -- take this opportunity to adjust in both -- PLEASE

It took some years to plug the loophole of balconies/decks not being counted a few years ago, not successful with basements. Now's the time to try again. It will not only reduce monster-house size but do the same for coach houses.}

we will be developing further

whether or not to delegate to staff

locn of dwelling; locn of sideyard, steep lots, so have revised guidelines re 1vi{?}

next steps

bylaws before Ccl tonight, if advances

will devp xxx over the summer

look at an effective date in October

Mayor: think you've been v patient with this process, been a long long process

Ccl, ask now or hear from public?

Sop: entire cmnty below the hwy?

SM: sec ste in virtually all sgl-fam homes

{yes; I've heard there are about 6-7000 sec stes in WV (lowest est I've heard is over 3K) and that it's rare for a new house to be built without a provision for same -- "mortgage-helper" given the price of homes in WV. As of June 4, staff said 913 suites had been registered. IMO, not satisfactory to check only when someone complains -- nbrs are loath to report, understandably. Using any other ways?}

this is a detached form, have used that; ability to detach what is already allowed

Sop: certainly enough to move it on to PH

we chatted; we, as elected officials, wdn't have much

wd consultant ? [9:40]

SM: will work with a design professional and for siting

Staff will help re costs, &&&; will be reporting back with proposed fees to cover costs

Sop: what if a nbr doesn't like proposal?

SM: depends at what stage; as early as possible

inform; concerns, issues, xxx whether delegated to staff ??? re Lower Caulfeild, ... xxx

Mayor: go to PH?

Sop: one more question

improvements re Assmt Auth has earmarks, increase in assessment

Mayor: that's BC Assmt's job

MB: re lodgers and B&Bs not permitted

these are rentals so what differentiates these two exclusions?

SM: xxx

MB: under Zoning Bylaw p4 Appendix B p2?

Sokol: think I can answer

definition of lodger and B&B -- for sec stes don't allow, so same, we don't

MB: not saying Coach house cdn't be a B&B???

Sokol: you cd not; to have a B&B separate zoning

MB: sep zoning for B&B

Sokol: lodgers defined; longer term rental of space, not permanent; ppl coming and going in nbrhd zoning is trying to avoid

ML: wd a foreign student living in a residence be considered a lodger? there are lots of those

Sokol: believe it wd be but if Ccl wd allow, I'll bring it back

Chris Poulter: my wife {S LaPorta} and I support but a couple of things in this doc

Cclr Sop had a question not fully answered -- wch areas below the hwy were excluded

to the best of my knowledge only RS6, Eagle Island, 34 props ...

we'e not against having a site-specific zoning, looked at fees -- application fee is $6K, other.....

don't understand why 34 residents on Eagle Island subject to these fees when rest of WV is not

a letter, mine, streamlined rezoning for {gives details}

cost minimal b/c most xxx

asking it be fair and everybody have the same cost


have to stop?

Mayor: can delegate

C Poulter: I'll speak for my wife

Wife :-): just this one time!

C Poulter: xxx coach house, an inconsistency, shd be fair

Mayor: now or PH

Sokol: 34 prop owners -- relates to parking and is there enough

so b/c of that with sec stes, carried over did not allow

might be allowed by a suite-specific rezoning

more staff/cost; reports to Ccl, PH, etc so goes up and were trying to cover Dist's costs

covering &&&

during phase when trying to legalize existing stes; originally uptake was slower than expected

many existing -- suite or house owner-occupied -- felt ppl not coming forth b/c no one

existing sec stes so ppl wd come forward

no pre-existing coach houses

hv heard if both rented out wd change nbrhd


over time, maybe cd ..... removing xxx at

Mayor: motion passed?

C Poulter: last time

we said we already had three parking spaces

to go through it again if we already have to

Mayor: if build a coach for an elderly mother who doesn't drive

Need motion to go past 10 -- CARRIED

Mayor: Jake Fry

JF: owner of a company specializing in these smaller buildings and also promoting smaller housing options

needed housing type

look at NV and their experience

started as a rental; 75% of our units tend to be for extended family

heritage tool, effective

review processes have worked v well in Vancouver and NV

did a longitudinal study, 1.5, 3yr did a direct survey -- 375 then; parking was the initial concern, then dropped; after 10 - 12 mos ppl felt more positive

by the time house had been in yr to 13 months, 30% considered of putting one in themselves

1% housing stock

generally getting 5%

Heather Johnston: an architect; coach houses here and in Seattle as well

a lot of thought; annual review will help improve it

xxx support it

CC: before motion on the floor

Qs re Eagle Island and think the Mayor as hit the nail on the head

think change now b/c if at PH we have to hold another PH

3.1.2 make nec addns; such as Eagle Island; expedited process where parking concerns can be mitigated

no car or kept at Marina

no sense that process and all that staff time

ML: if there are some things we want to change now

don't want to wordsmith now -- 10 o'clock

another ccl mtg next Monday; bring 'em back

CC: xxx do in one step

and listen to Mr Mikicich's dulcet tones

Mayor: if we table this to next Monday, then enough time


Mayor: can changes to bylaw be made on 16th?

Sokol: changes not allowed at second reading

Mayor: third? no guess we can't do that

Sop: other ramifications; I want to hear from Mr M

SM: we'll take direction from Ccl but the approach we've taken is re sec stes

this is a detached form of sec ste

then raises the Q re RS6

Mayor: if someone has RS6 and [10:03]

SM: cannot vary density

{get this}

over summer we'd need to look at the rezoning process; costs

Sokol: one of the issues with the parking; Eagle Island cannot have a dedicated parking space on xxx

if lease from adjacent prop/nbr; new owner may not want to lease; wd have a coach house without a

Mayor: if you want the PH on the 16th have to pass this [now]

NG: can we look at this in the future?

all the residents of EagIe Island -- put it aside?

a year from now; wd like to hear from more ppl on Eagle Island; have to xxx

Sokol: xxx

SLIDE of Vision and Mission

JL: thank you for the opp

SLIDES: presenting and producing; Youth Initiatives; Artistic Co-Producers and Partners

SLIDE of Revenue Breakdown: Tix; Sponsors and Funders; Municipal collaboration; Sch Bd, School

[~12:58 Item 4 of video:]

Leadership Gift of $1M (over ten years) [from Grosv]: the mainstage theatre will now be called The Grosvenor Theatre

Nov 6 marks 20th anniversary of first public performance at KMC; Kay Meek Week

[13:39] SLIDE of organizational priorities

Rick Mercer Fundraising Gala Friday June 6

List of Directors, Admin staff; have over 100 volunteers

PT: Sch Bd reps in gallery. Any questions?

Sop: thx, job well done. Other theatres opening, xxx, long-range plans, xxx -- how do you see the future going?

JLeS: can look at new as competition in arts and culture or expanding audiences, theatre rather than looking at NetFlix, their iPad, or longboarding (here). See what they like.

PT: as long as we keep our dynamism and learn what ppl like, what their appetites are

and as long as we have partners, like the M, and outstanding partners like Grosvenor Americas, ... we'll be fine

MB: Congratulations on the Grosvenor Endowment; what opps do you see you cdn't before?

{Motion to receive}

Mayor: before you leave, good working together with M and with Sch Dist good story, much value to the cmnty

Thank you; look forward

PT: as do we...


5. Reports from Mayor and Councillors on Boards, Committees, and Working Groups

Mayor: who wants to start?

MB: first thing, the "Secrets" forum last week; fantastic turnout; feature speaker a bit of a rockstar in {his field}...

amazing video by a student on mental illness; issues: awareness and access; Workplan for Youth Services

promised to announce Filipino Days Festival June 14/15 in NV Waterfront Park

Mayor: Last Wednesday I had the pleasure to attend the WV United Church's Seniors' Luncheon; interesting there were 42 seniors there over 90;

{I'd heard in total 150 for lunch!}

great lunch, great company; amazing what good shape they were in

Said I hoped to get there one day and the lady sitting next to me suggested I might like to take off a few pounds

{[7:27] to some laughter}

ML, sitting at the podium to show slides: Normally, reports a bit retrospective, xxx;

Last Friday and Saturday I attended an event called the World Taxpayers' Conference in Vancouver; 200+ delegates from all around the world

one presentation by the C D Howe Institute I thought was really [relevant?], so I took the liberty of selecting some slides

the coming demographic of glacier

SLIDES breakdown, over 65; and xx to 24; workforce popn growth

half a per cent

GDP, srs' benefits, education (flat at 6%), terrific growth in health costs b/c of ageing popn

v limited growth of revenue base; v scary

SLIDE of chart -- see bottom 358.l3 [check?] in health care -- trillions unfunded in health care

unfunded liabilities; these costs increasing in trillions; shd we start to re-fund some of these?

major impact on our democracy

brought home to me talking around Ccl .... transit, all the same taxpayer

{btw, fyi, a couple of weeks ago someone on the radio was commenting that young ppl used to be ~37% of our popn -- and srs about 25%? -- now, or soon, the young (18 - 24) are/will be only 13%. With pensions and health care, taxes will skyrocket. What to do?}

Mayor: comfort that our fed govt is increasing [the number of] our MPs by 30


NG: how am I going to make the mood a little lighter?

last week was bike week; your staff and Ccl are working hard to reduce GHG

we came second on the NSh to CNV -- diff between 500 and 1000 employees

cycled 2820km (here to WPG) and saved XX KG [7:34]

Andrew Banks cycled 132km to work {named others}, names end with B

{she means start!}

Sop: I went 20 blocks on an electric bike

{laughter} [7:35]

6. Upper Lands Study Review Working Group śProgress Report’

Mayor: interim report

Sokol: Since Nov 2013

{no, 2012!}

working diligently meeting twice a month

introduce David Hawkins, started in March; helping Andy and Cclr Panz

TP: xxx complex but exciting; call your names, pls stand up


Andy K: last time my other co-chair

SLIDES David will go through

DH: primary staff liaison; have around 1000 slides, intro then Andy


6000 acres, north of est'd nbrhds up to park

broader phase [7:41]

consultation; what shd guide

final phase, planning; the six key directions WG is proposing

initial building blocks, basis for future recomms

Series of seven maps; rec features, trails; 15 stewardship grps having input

around 40 to event with cabin owners


around 200, largest engagement of that tool

{nope -- misleading}

Andy K: xxx

SLIDE "What We've Heard" highlights

real attachment to the Upper Lands


desire to protect features; high rec use but even those

recogn private owners' rights

{That's been said on a few occasions, and may be misinterpreted. The largest landowner as we know BPP, but they don't have the right to do whatever they want. Just as DWV decides zoning below 1200ft, so it does above. They can only do what the cmnty agrees they can do.)

things happen, they just happen; as in cabins, loyalty

loyalty to the number 1200 for a lot of ppl; become iconic to desire to [keep]

will have more to say about that

there will be some new nbrhds in this area; make it more inclusive and sustainable [7:46]


try to agree where we're going to take it

recreate vision of 2011 and eventually landed on three core values all of our cmnty can agree and embrace

all devt and fdn &&&

envmtal features -- immense xxx beauty; xxx

certain kind of nbrhd model -- if we're going to see has to be one that works with envmt

{ah, yes. When split up into grps at a WG mtg I asked if the characteristics they were describing applied to above or below 1200ft. They didn't answer, saying didn't apply.}

we've given it a shot

1 - in order to protect -- maintain &&&

forego any variation in 1200

2 - protect &&&

be consistent with what we heard

under recreation, two directions: regulate rec uses; balance with cmnty's envtal values

recommend we're going to do that

3 - identify land privately owned; possible acquisition; xxx

Nbrhd: any cluster devt around Cypress Village, attempt to minimize of devt; optimize.... strong... connection to other WV.... shops services; diff ages and incomes

six key directions

{will see if I can get this slide or the memo and put in WVM}

what are the implications?

hear from cmnty


proposed next steps -- will be at Cmnty Day with our own booth

[with] Invasive Species no longer -- they invaded our space last year!

we need further info before making any decisions

re cabins, we've scheduled a mtg June 25, cabins {Assn} invited

announcing in Sept/Oct

Phase Two engagement following; we have a webpage, in advance cmnty will be notified

hope to come to final, back to Ccl spring of 2015

we'll need to request our term be extended until that time

MB: a lot of work gone into this, consultation with cmnty, in report

hv the advantage and disadvantage not being familiar with UL

first, p17, idea of identifying private lands -- can you be specific or premature?

examples of what you're thinking? opp? see it's a key direction

Andy K: a large landowner, BPP, and they have landowner rights

rec, envmtal,

{Note the repeated emphasis on BPP's/private owner's rights???}

DH: various rec assets; form of ownership or ROW

Rodgers Crk mtn bike est'd

MB: huge and imp to cmnty

have you done any engagement with the youth? this is their future; they use these lands

not a v creative and informed aproach

AK: saw a number of youth in consultation phase, mtn bike, xxx

Phase B &&&

Sop: I don't think density transfer is a good idea

My premise is no land devpr shd hv rights that affect sensitive areas

see that in next report?

think there's gotta be a better way; partners, have to work in hand with them

spent a lot of time up there with many groups

sought-after, world renowned

1200 below

{GET THIS? [7:58] }

is this one of your maps? can hardly read

red line for 1200 and for TransCanada Trail

what Regional Growth Strategy where we shd go xxx; we have a two-year window

Sokol: RGS two and a half yrs ago, our UL was designated as a special area

we wanted to work out what we wanted so we got {extension?}

mtg June 6 Draft xxx Strategy

we need more time

RGS said all M-owned land were designated rec and conservation

all .... [8:01]

ULWG urban make sense

Sop: we have a sgl landowner from 1200 to 2000ft?

Sokol: more owners, District, and primary is BPP

above 1200 restrictions: limited use and rec

Sop: 2600 ha owns

park dedication wonderful thing to see after 18 yrs on Ccl

are we going to see any devt above the 1200ft?

Mayor: you just heard no devt above the 1200ft

Sop: I heard it; I want to hear it again

AK: consistent heard over and over; maintain no above and equally no variation


Sop: that's wonderful news

Mayor: comf now?

Sop: what are you going to tell Metro? tell them mind their own biz

Mayor: going to find out June 6

Sop: you talk about xxx but no example except trails

AK: mtn biking, there are others

Mayor: blackberries, for example


Sop: thank you, going in right direction

NG: I too wd like to thank ev in the WG, diligence maybe for another year

really happy to see restriction to 1200; foregoing further devt above 1200ft

rec plan, I support

now to nbrhd model -- last night so maybe a bit tired

when I first read it, thought may be the model for all in the Upper Lands

now, cluster all devt around Cypress Village? is that the interpretation

{exactly my concern, Nora.}

AK: saying in effect YES.

under 1200ft devt be guided by xxx and mix of uses [8:07]

NG: but this is related -- no, 3 says a sort of nbrhd model

{Yup, as I said -- got an equivocal answer}

AK: only one in our sights

NG: maybe just me, make it a bit more clear for the public

this is the only nbrhd we're modelling; wasn't v clear to me; maps helpful

{on purpose?}

anyone have a comment what's happened in the past happened

nothing in nature is a straight line; the way the land has been chopped up and divided, goes against nature

as the grp moves forward we look at ways to get out of cut and slice

crazy, more convenient lots cut out wd what?

need to get Bill Chapman some new equipment to make curvy

ML: are you suggesting only nbrhd wd be in the worksyard

look at Map 4, little PU area; then we have all this land west

Sokol: these are the key directions; will be addl policies; try to cluster around the WorksYard; will get refined

ML: concerned we're precluding what by BPP or whoever; just by worksyard not entirely accurate

how did you come to the conclusion made no sense to trade above for below 1200 prop

AK: diff political consideration, large P

we are a cmnty, we are a WG that reflects the cmnty; interact

became clear to us, going to make recomm truly had to make a distinction above and below the 1200


cmnty that knows in the future will have to be some where no devt, may have to be

1200 important to protect

focus on Cypress V

can't put a giant fence

1200 came back to us all the time

{at last admitted!}

ML: heard there may be exceptions

AK: go to cmnty but at this point no exceptions

Sokol: and that may be one of the things to get from public

limited use and recreation; continue having nbrhds but may be further definitions of

don't think they're recommending ev above 1200ft be a park

what constitutes limited use and rec

ML: not suggesting houses but what; be v clear

AK: agree; for devt for many means houses

what kind of devt will you live with; rec possibilities, wd also hv to be negotiated

Mayor: remind public sign to speak; haven't anyone

Andy, finished? think

Edward von Dane (sp?): resident and also a cabin owner

one thing apparent -- did have a deficit in addressing the cabin owners

so they're fixing that; in two weeks, great

never been discussed, cabin uses for my whole life is recreational, we don't live here

Mayor: those cabins have bn there a long time

TP: [Cmnty Day booth] thrilled don't have to share space with Invasive; maps

thank all mbrs of Ccl for input

stepping out again ...high level principles

Cclr Sop: you're always talking about the long view

move motion; add extend the term

Mayor: you don't mind?

CC: as Cclr Panz has so eloquently ... driven by the public

more onerous than when started; laudable and all take seriously

ultimately decision of what to implement is Ccl's; ignore public at their peril

thank mbrs of cmnty for their feedback

not poss? if not citizens who haven't come out to mtgs, etc

quality of the WG's recomm rest on commitment of ppl in cmnty making their voices heard

MOTION: Report dated May 14 att'd as App śA’ to the report from the Sr Cmnty Planner, rec'd for info.


7. Recommendation of Optimal Boundary for a Park Dedication Bylaw for the land surrounding Whyte Lake and Whyte Lake Trail

Mayor: this is exciting as Cclr Sop said

Cclr Panz's efforts before on Ccl but through PMP etc; something that's going to stand WV in good stead

MetroV is going to have another 1M ppl by 2040 {CHECK #}

will look for opps; this item everyone will be proud of and WV in particular

Cclr Panz needs recogn for special effort put on this

{applause, some standing!}

{Endangered frog too, in costume}

TP: thank you for those comments; takes all of us; all of us for this to happen

Mayor: public after intro

AM: tonight is a result continuous effort of many years

2012 Parks Master Plan [PMP] recomm to protect; culmination of considerable efforts

Andrew and Corinne will do {make} a brief presentation

Andrew Banks: one of the most beautiful areas -- Whyte Lake and Whyte Lake Trail area


Areas 1 and 2

protection of the envmt -- hi ecological areas; wetlands, creeks, and the lake

protect, restore, and xxx [8:27]; protection of envmtal features

uphold the vision of the PMP and values of ULWG

Rec Values: PMP notes hi rec and envmtal values

trail in need of protection; rec values in a blended manner

What park to Cypress Park [8:28 continuous]

4 Areas 1 and 2, ease for dedication; M-owned lands

bylaw by Cmnty Charter; dedic wd fulfil as minimum

most of the water feeding? in protected

5 potential for carbon credits, in offset process; cd benefit Dist

2 &&&

extensive consultation with cmnty, wide support

engagement through westvancouverITE indicates wide support as park

addl land as park in Upper Lands support

ULWG review as to wch addns

2012 PMP process, ULWG, further consultation, areas 1 and 2 the ultimate option?

if approved, staff to draw bylaws re boundary for the park

Mayor: have you a slide showing the size of the park,

Areas 1 and 2

AB: 120ha; Lighthouse Pk is 75; Old Growth ha [8:32]

ML: see Sea-to-Sky is that a tunnel?

AB: no it's xxx

ML: how wide is that xxxx

AB: can't

120ha, cpl of hundred metres

ML: but quite close to the lake; future acq as buffer?

terrific, thank you for your good work

Sop: former Mayor Pam G-J is in the audience and she wd hv liked that to be the tunnel line

look at ... any opp after tonight bits and pieces dedicated? from a watershed perspective

great thing

after 18 yrs, did waterfront and can't pull it out

marvellous thing for ppl who live out there

in the context of what we see here, the yellow, owners of that, I'd be flexible if any of that yellow be turned into park, Mr Sokol

Sokol: not sure -- is that a rhetorical question?


think that's part of the mandate of the ULWG

recogn in this area there are privately held lands; if sensitive areas on private lands, what &&&

what if not technically sensitive but wd like to see

that's where transfer of density &&&

ULWG talking about transferring to Cypress V

Sop: to watershed; they're going to have to give us that land; has to be a tradeoff

BPP, they're going to have to give it to us and not expect anything back



Mayor: okay!

NG: nice slides, was looking for the one of Cclr Panz in the buff

this is great but reiterate my concern with the straight line; already in conflict

look at maps, look at envmtally sensitive, doesn't support making a park of Area 1, more of area east

as a person quoted in the report said, imp not the final boundaries

know ULWG will xxx

be working on this more

structured on an eco basis; not happy with straight line

why is the northern tip xxx?

xxxcove area 2 hasn't been included

AB: PMP specifically spoke to Whyte Land and Trail; in discussions, water into Whyte Lake Area 2; Area 1 not in discussion, cd be included

NG: wd like to see in future, this is the first step, corridor from Larson to Area 1, under 1200ft mark park; my POV

Mayor: hear from public

David Cook: reside in NV, Dir of Vanc Natural History Society, Nature Van, and Dir OGCS

Nature history field trips, dear to their heart
give support

importance of connectivity; wildlife corridors, hwys, help maintain health, genetic mixing, xxx

Bruce McArthur (was dressed as frog): pleased; hope envtal study; bring another biologist

one we had before noted red-legged frogs, essential we have someone there who can watch and record

Mayor: you'll see the frog gets safely across the hwy

Bruce: &&& critters

Liz Byrd: actually here on behalf of my nbr, Sue Rowan, and have a note

greennutter Eagleridge Bluffs 2006; congrats

hidden gems, public not even aware of in 2006

expansion set me on a course, this area and all.....

Nelson Crk Park to Whyte Lake; raised the bar

dear in our heart far greater value than devt

'optimal' boundaries -- give impression not only need but also been mindful interconnected

into future

straight lines I see Areas 1 and 2 indicate not been ground-truthed

spend time to xxx watersheds

what makes most sense on the ground, not just &&&

ensure xxx and all protected

notes of my own: new director of WRA; xxx to HBay

takes four hours in Toronto to go to wilderness, here ten to 20 min!

glorious to sit here and know you'll soon pass this and make av to everybody


Pam Goldsmith-Jones: ten years ago, in 2004 Ron Wood stood up

xxx Liz Byrd was arrested

negotiations took years and we ended up getting twice

Parks WG, xxxx and xxxx

expression of our highest values; waking up and realizing xxx

when you named

and hundreds of citizen engagement

truly one of WV's proudest moments

thank you; owe you a debt of gratitude

Mayor: and you were a tower of strength

six years; empowering &&&

thank you for your leadership


Woman: thank you for endorsing &&& [8:52]

my family worked; lost that one, can't win them all

brought my daughter to see; brought this poem she wrote eight years ago

SLIDE of poem

eight years ago yesterday that the first of the old-growth arbutus trees were cut down

thank all and esp Trish Panz for getting this


Paul Hundal: 20 yrs ago I wrote my first letter to Ccl

residents will praise you; the area is drinking supply area Larson

that's why never sold to BPP &&&

that watershed was decommissioned some years ago so why &&&

whole area

understand why boundaries tonight; b/c Whyte Lake area but when looking at watershed area

[what you] do in one part affects another

context map put up so can see and understand

{pointing:} western watershed edge this boundary, so protection on western edge

area est above 1200ft will be protected; this area shd be looked at as being added on

tonight is Whyte Lake night but consider [later]

Nelson Crk wetlands

add to motion?

so this cd be considered -- straight line doesn't make sense in terms of watershed

TP made motion: THAT

  1. The optimal boundary for a park dedication bylaw for the land surrounding Whyte Lake and Whyte Lake Trail identified in Appendix A to the report dated May 12, 2014, as Areas 1 and 2, be approved; and

  2. The area identified in Appendix A to the report dated May 12, 2014, as the Larson Creek Wetlands, be considered for future park dedication, subject to further public consultation; and that

  3. Staff prepare proposed Park Dedication Bylaw for Areas 1 & 2, to be known as Whyte Lake Pk.

am adding a fourth part

Mayor: one motion

TP: speak again, promise under five minutes

Coalition to save Eagleridge Bluffs, raised recog of value [9pm]; never lost sight of bigger picture

most weren't aware wasn't a park

this moment, reflection of quality of what this cmnty values

highlight the value we have as a cmnty to lead re carbon credits

help us realize commitment we made last term of carbon neutrality when we signed on

this, cmnty can be equally ... value proud???

This is a special moment for me tonight; doesn't happen without a lot of ppl pulling together

thank ev mbr of Ccl

I think the cmnty spoke v clearly

this is setting a standard when we look

this ccl and future ccls will see the legacy of

do the best we can for this generation and future

thank you for your kind comments and &&& [9:03]

Sop: thank all

knew something was going on in HBay

TP: forgot -- this is the largest park dedication in WV --156ha if we include the Nelson Canyon Park today; real milestone

Mayor: a real tribute to citizens and our staff



8. Notice of Motion re Options for Prelim Future Route for the Spirit Trail between 13th & 19th Streets

Information to be provided.

CC: brought to clarify

Tsleil-Waututh, etc; strong effort to come to fruition; Sq and CNV

unfortunately in WV haven't made as much progress; need to move it westward

serves a number of our policy goals; livening

changes to foot of 14th; restaurant at Argyle and 15th

not properly designed without knowing how Spirit Trail fits in

Staff left without Ccl direction on this; looking for staff to come back with three options

not along tracks or waterfront; area south of the tracks

all traffic prevented from going along Argyle and xxx along Argyle

another option, resembled interim soln, making parking ANGLE??

leave Argyle and immed S

implementation wd hv to wait until Dist acq; traffic between 14 and 15th

do we don't preclose? options

Staff report back by July 14/15; selection confirmed after public consultation; Ccl two solns to public

NG: to add, for me, really the only issue is parking

wanna do this but clear in debate in Oct

show us an option with no parking, some parking (Oct), or with the status quo; only issue is parking

take those out to public consultation

Sop: no denying from early inception of WG, trail right through to Deep Cove; Sq did the first bit by Mosquito Crk

did our first part to 13th; went out west xxx

recomms to Ccl, one of the best areas for consultation as to how when we met with roadblocks going through nbrhds

no prob looking at the future; we have many things to xxx

have to purchase some homes; haven't made a decision wrt Sailing Club and boat ramp

Parking is the issue, Grosv construction, haven't big field for parking, it's gone to sports


work done 16 to 19th, no automobiles

see how that wd be treated


that's the area I wd consider

all wd love to see that trail close to the rlwy tracks

if not right away, time to step back and see all the functions we want on the waterfront finished

ML: do all agree there'll be a Spirit Trail and along Argyle

as with Sop, not sure this is the time to make changes

in light of fact will be along Argyle, what point to get staff to do? approp use of staff time?

had this discussion once already

where access not required --??? not going to do too much

with Amb Biz cmnty -- construction in 1300blk and elsewhere

focus my energy, wd think of 16/17th or Dundarave area

HBay to Cap? on a bike

not even suggestion can ..... some other assisted technology

don't know what in absence of rlwy pulling out -- how get to 25 to 29?

we have a TransCanada Trail

at this point going back revisiting and in the end not doing anything, not likely to do anything until construction over

don't see what we're going to accomplish; already gone through the exercise

remainder of this year

MB: to address Cclr Lewis's plan

when staff put interim plan it was imminent

what Cclr Cam is getting at is where it's going so we can plan the other initiatives

remember reading the SpTrail reports, the word that stuck out was URGENT; broad cmnty support

frankly a little embarrassing WV not made much progress

[NV] City not letting barriers getting in their way

with the urgency we've got to make a plan

v few unknowns; all we're doing is putting it off

we know we're going to buy those props on the waterfront, going to put a restaurant &&&

and we even know parking; just we're reluctant to bite the bullet

great headway out in the west, in four zones

some issues around access and mobility -- staff shd consider that

multi-user path; building in opps for access

without having everyone in their cars; hv to look at that creatively

identifying the route then working around it

TP: staff worked hard for that interim

was the issue of parking; opp for parking to be minimal; unf did not go fwd

struggling with whether to support or not

clear that trail will go along Argyle; hoping staff wd be integrating that piece

we might not be as good as CNV on this issue, but they haven't..... park

don't think cmnty has wavered

Spirit Trail along Argyle I'm good with that

{What wd you be bad with?}

between 16 and 19 for cyclists, bit of a focus

might just confuse public more with three alternatives


Mayor: worth noting working out well

days I don't go to the gym walk -- 13th to 19th -- walkers joggers, l....

does work well


have to acquire those three props

is M going to acq a site for parking so don't need a parking lot?

we all know Spirit Trail won't go all the way along

sure it will be a designated route but so many factors before we determine where route will go

need b/c of Grosv and will need when new restaurant goes in

need access to Music Box and Silk Purse

I support the intent of Cclr Cam but if we pass the motion -- going to take a lot of staff time

see cyclists

I live in Dundarave

come out 25th, road pretty wide to West Bay

windy there and no sidewalk, can't walk safely; that's the area that needs critical attn

right now, this motion is premature

CC: it's not working well right now; I have kids and it's not working well now

cyclists in two directions, cars in none, ........

not working well and it's not a Spirit Trail if there are cars on it

we already have one for cars, it's called WV {???}

..... need to implement it

premature to do it now; construction on 1300, potential with restaurant; bunch of things to flesh out

we need to plan, but we haven't made a decision

TP said down Argyle but Ccl hasn't made that decision

what does it mean down Argyle, lose half the parking? does Ccl want to make that decision?

parking for FBG and xxx

width for parking and Spirit Trail

I'm not advocating one or the other

renovations for FBG -- [need] to know about parking; Sailing Ctr

all of these things have to operate around a proper plan; we don't have a plan right now

Staff is working on traffic, will stop on Argyle, and trail down there

if so, we have to tell public that; xxx

staff come forward with options and Ccl make decision

asked Mr Fung -- two have been fleshed out and won't take long for the three; all I'm asking is have a plan

if we're going to make a decision, communicate it to the public b/c that's how we do things in WV

Sop: here are five pages in front of me; plan before you were on Ccl

Mr F informed you embark on

{[9:33] get this?}

always understanding

Amb area south of the tracks all the way along; work along Bellevue in Dund

so there is a plan in place, money not always in place

with all the things going on on Argyle, not the time to do it

NG: the only prudent way to proceed

restaurant here, expansion of gallery here, xxx

we shd not be afraid to bite the bullet; devil in the detail, Brent Leigh likes to say

when we talk about money, ppl back off when see map and parking

we need to lead by example and vision and get going

Mayor: my understanding not nec Argyle, S of the tracks

everything we do now, not preclude taking any land for the Spirit Trail

we've not blocked the fact we can take land for Spirit Trail

Mayor: xxx; in favour? opposed?

motion defeated [9:36]


9. Proposed Zoning Bylaw No. 4662, 2010, Amdmt Bylaw No. 4788, 2014 and Proposed Devt Permit

No. 13- 018 for 870 and 876 Keith Rd (Parcel 3 of Evelyn by Onni)

The proposed bylaw rec'd first reading at the April 7 reg Ccl mtg, and is the subject of a PH scheduled for May 26. If the PH is closed, and the proposed bylaw receives second and third reading at the mtg, it may be considered for adoption on June 2. If the PH is closed on May 26, Ccl is not permitted to receive any further submissions [wrt] the proposed bylaw.

NG: little consideration of natural; surface area from 40 to 50%

don't want the xxx to think setting a precedent

only b/c public not making a fuss, I'm not

surface area being devpd more than we said in the plan

do not support denuding sort of devt

MOTION: THAT the proposed “Zoning ... Amendment BylawŁ be adopted.

Mayor: NG and Sop opposed; and to next one

MOTION: proposed Devt Permit, wch wd allow for the construction of a 23-unit cluster house bldg, be approved.

{NG and Sop opposed}

ML: MOTION re master plan [9:40]

Sop: disagree with altering the master plan with a devt of that size

shift &&& &&&

density shift; think it's the wrong thing to do; we set out parameters and they shd be followed

nicely laid out shdn't start halfway through the process

all the money from CACs; residents going to be looking at tel lines

unless they

Mayor: Ccl relies on staff recomms and they approved b/c of xxx and xxx and xxx

so think it's incumbent on Ccl that if any changes come forward

make sure staff xxx, esp if comes forward with no CACs and no relief for putting lines underground

MB: number of units hasn't changed, the FAR hasn't changed; shift from one parcel to another?

Sokol: correct

MB: perception something untoward happening here

getting better structure; and the other thing yes, benefits devpr but actually devps the cmnty

the cluster homes are 100% presold and .... 50% [rest]

so need out there

xxx structural integrity

support this wholeheartedly; shows we're adaptable and flexible, wise decision

{PASSED w/ Sop opposed}

Item 9.1 {added} -- Water bylaw for adoption -- DONE

12. Public Questions/Comments

CR: Good evening; I didn't think it wd come so fast! I have a couple of points to make.

First is, how long is it usual for letters in Public Correspondence to get a reply?

Second, some years ago, many of us proposed, and it was largely accepted, that surfaces shd hv as much pervious as possible, and I think Cclr Gamb mentioned that tonight, and so I wd like to know if the parking lot that's to the north is pervious or not -- so are we following the envmtal recomm that was made that we have pervious surfaces; that's better for the envmt?

{wrt Ev/Onni} To Cclr Booth, who just spoke, I think what she's missing is that if that's all you're considering, that's fine, but as it was said they are probably going to come back to devp another parcel with more units and clusters, and that's free to do now. So it wasn't just this, it's what are they going to do in future.

Now, to the Upper Lands WG, I'm really plsd that they came to this point. The WG must hv had an epiphany b/c when I went to one of the most recent mtgs, they had changed from what they had said about the 1200ft level; they had changed what they'd done about the Hollyburn [cabins], so somebody has had some really good influence on them.

{wrt 1200ft} When Cclr Gamb says it was a straight line, I'm wondering what she's thinking of b/c it isn't actually a straight line once you have parks and things in between.

So, the nbrhd model [was] really imp, I think there's still some opening for wiggle room in that from what I've heard b/c when I went to the Nbrhd Model thing {one of the groups the WG broke up into during the mtg}, and I asked, is this above 1200 or below 1200, now that you're drawing up guidelines for what the nbrhd wd be?

They said, oh no, just "Upper Lands". I hope they've changed their mind on that.

B/c last fall I told them in their questions or advised them or encouraged them in their questions, surveys, etc., identify what's below and what's above -- b/c ppl have diff ideas about that [those], and that's what you saw. I told them again in January, and then when you got letters in your Correspondence from ppl saying they were v confused. They didn't know whether these applied to above or below.

So, I want to thank Cclr Sop and Cclr Gamb for trying to get confirmation about above the 1200ft level. I won't bore your time [sic] now, but I saw two sentences in the report that showed the door was going to be open.

Thank you for your, uh, watching of that. I'm really glad they have changed their mind about things, so it's a great opp.

And we look forward to more consultation. tyvm

Mayor: thank you

CR: and how will I get the answers to some of my questions?

I hv found that this, this is done here, we suggested that answers to PQP be put in writing, or something, if not answered then b/c when somebody asks something, often other ppl have the same question. I was the one who got "Responses to Correspondence" put in, wch was v useful b/c ppl didn't keep phoning staff, they got an answer.

Mayor: I think Ms Leemhuis is trying to respond, but...

CR: great

Mayor: you've, have you, used up your three minutes; your three minutes is up, so turn it over to Ms Leemhuis.

NL, CAO: thank you, Mr Mayor; thank you, Carolanne

I will speak with you tomorrow and follow up on the specific correspondence that you--

CR: --two letters from March

CAO: okay, I'll talk to you tomorrow and follow up

Mayor: March 2013 or March 2014?

{laughter; can't hear Nina's retort but think it was,"oh stop!"}

CR: 2015 -- I look ahead! Can anyone answer about the parking lot? is it pervious or not?

Mayor: Mr Fung. Got lots of nice landscaping around it.

CR: replaced better landscaping

RF: the north parking lot construction was an element of the entire PSB project that was advanced, and so, my understanding is that the asphalt that was used is not pervious. The runoff from that is supposed to be integrated into a rain garden that will be a part of the PSB site works.

Mayor: thank you

CR (choosing not to debate that point and knowing how anxious some get eager to adjourn the mtg): tyvm.

Mayor: Cclr Booth

13. Adjournment

Grand Total of Remuneration and Expenses



Based on Provincial instructions, reporting of Police remuneration details has been indefinitely suspended.

The statement of remuneration and expenses paid to employees during the year ended December 31, 2013 lists gross remuneration which includes regular salaries as well as payment for taxable benefits, overtime, other allowances and payout of entitlements that may have been earned in previous years.

In addition, 2013 includes an adjustment to Fire salaries for 2010 and 2011 reflecting a retroactive union settlement reached during 2013.


The Fire Dept salaries hv bn removed from this list but were in the last newsletter, as were the (underpaid in comparison) council figs -- ~$35K for councillors and ~$75K for the mayor.

The annual CAO salary does not appear b/c the former worked about six months and the new one about four. Also, benefits for staff are 22 - 26% of wch only about 5% are included in the amts shown (so add about a fifth to those figs). Salaries are ~80% of WV's Operating Budget. A letter from a teacher in the NSN said that with a B.Ed and 35 yrs' teaching, he'd be making ~$76K this year, while a BCMLA ~$101K, and Premier Christy Clark $193K. Pls note some of our staff wd be making more than that this year.

+ The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune, were the landing operations on 6 June 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the invasion of German-occupied western Europe, led to the restoration of the French Republic, and contributed to an Allied victory in the war.

German casualties on D-Day were around 1,000 men. Allied casualties were at least 12,000, with 4,414 confirmed dead. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normandy_landings

The Normandy landings were the largest seaborne invasion in history, with nearly 5,000 landing and assault craft, 289 escort vessels, and 277 minesweepers participating. Nearly 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel on D-Day, with 875,000 men disembarking by the end of June.

+ Vancouver Police Pipe Band

o Centennial -- 100th Anniversary in June 2014

The Vancouver Police Pipe Band is one of two senior bands locally and ranks amongst the oldest police pipe bands in the world. The band wears traditional full highland dress uniforms in the historic style of British Army Highland Regiments with kilts and plaids of Prince Charles Edward Stuart tartan. More info: http://www.pipeband.ca


This June, the Vancouver Police Pipe Band will crown their centennial year by travelling to England to perform in the Changing of the Guard, the first non-military pipe band to perform in the ceremony’s 350-year history.

The Band leaves for London on June 7 and will perform the Beating Retreat at the Horse Guards Parade on June 11 and 12.

On June 16, 19, 22, and 25, they will be at Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guard ceremony at 11:30am. They will also be at Windsor Castle on June 24 and 26 for the 11am changing of the guard.

It is always a great honour, as a police pipe band, to play for a member of the Royal Family. But to go to Buckingham Palace to play for our head of state in the Changing of the Queen’s Guard is an immeasurable honour in our centennial year celebration,Ł says Pipe Sergeant Bob Murphie. “We look forward to working with the Guards Regiments of the Household Division, [whom] we consider to be the very best in the world at what they do. The excitement is definitely building.Ł

Formed in 1914, the Vancouver Police Pipe Band is the oldest non-military pipe band in British Columbia, and with 100 years of uninterrupted service, stands as the longest continually serving police pipe band in the world.

[photo] The Royal Family gathered on the palace balcony to watch the Red Arrows

More than 1,000 soldiers took part in the annual ceremony to mark the Queen's official birthday.

Thousands of spectators also watched the annual meticulous display of army drill, music, and horsemanship.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh rode in a vintage carriage from Buckingham Palace, along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade where the event was staged....

The Red Arrows were a highlight of the flypast as they flew over the palace emitting red, blue and white smoke.

The military parade dates back to preparations for battle, when colours would be carried or "trooped" down the rank so they could be seen and recognised by the soldiers....

After the parade, the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery fired a 41-gun salute in Green Park to mark the Queen's official birthday.... Her actual birthday was on 21 April, when she turned 88.

The European Union on Thursday made a veiled threat to impose new economic sanctions on the settlements, calling on Israel to cancel its decisions to publish tenders for 1,500 settlement homes and advance plans for 1,800 more.

Meanwhile, the US said it was "deeply disappointed" by Israel's announcements of settlement expansion.

+ What is gruit? from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gruit

Gruit (alternately grut or gruyt) is an old-fashioned herb mixture used for bittering and flavouring beer, popular before the extensive use of hops. Gruit or grut ale may also refer to the beverage produced using gruit.

Gruit was a combination of herbs, commonly including sweet gale (Myrica gale), mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), yarrow (Achillea millefolium), ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea), horehound (Marrubium vulgare), and heather (Calluna vulgaris). Gruit varied somewhat, each gruit producer including different herbs to produce unique flavors and effects. Other adjunct herbs included black henbane, juniper berries, ginger, caraway seed, aniseed, nutmeg, cinnamon, and even hops in variable proportions. Some gruit ingredients are now known to have preservative qualities.

Some traditional types of unhopped beer such as sahti in Finland, which is spiced with juniper berries and twigs, have survived the advent of hops, although gruit itself has not....

Historical context

The exclusive use of gruit was gradually phased out in favour of the use of hops alone in a slow sweep across Europe occurring between the 11th century (in the south and east of the Holy Roman Empire) and the late 16th century (Great Britain). In 16th century Britain, a distinction was made between ale, which was unhopped, and beer, brought by Dutch merchants, which was hopped. Currently, however, ale usually refers to beer produced through a top-fermentation process, not unhopped beer.

The phasing out of gruit from brewing is linked to various factors. A possible political factor would be the general emancipation of princes (mainly German) from the political influence of the Roman Catholic Church in a movement that eventually was to lead to Martin Luther's protestations turning into a fully-fledged uprising of those princes against the authority of Rome, in what is known as the Reformation. Princes wanting to undermine the power of the Church therefore tended to promote brewing with hops rather than gruit, to try to cut off this revenue for the monastic orders who had a monopoly on it.

Some authors present the switch to hops as a Protestant crackdown on feisty Catholic tradition, and as a Puritan move to keep people from enjoying themselves with aphrodisiac and stimulating gruit ales by imposing the sedative effects of hops instead.[2] However, the switch to hops started in Germany some four or five centuries before the Reformation. Its later gradual enforcement in the 15th and early 16th centuries can in part be traced through legislation drafted by political rulers before the Reformation started.

The use of hops also has the advantage, in perception or fact, that beer made with hops lasts longer and resists spoilage better than that made with gruit. This preservative effect is tho

ught to have had a large impact on the early movement to switch over, although other plants commonly used in gruit mixes, for example sage, rosemary, or bog myrtle, also have antiseptic properties likely to extend the shelf life of beer.


Events moving quickly. The Sunni rebels have taken Mosul (an oil ctr) and three other cities. ISIS or ISIL stand for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or Greater Syria (Shamas), or the Levant. Reports about 3000 rebels and the 30,000 Iraqi soldiers ripped off their uniforms, dropped their weapons, and fled. One report said only 800 rebels took the city; 500K citizens fled Mosul. Rebels seized weapons including helicopters and are now rich since they raided the bank and took $400M.

Some blaming Sykes-Picot (1916: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SykesôPicot_Agreement) and some saying Saddam better than govt now. Almost all say Bush's 2003 pre-emptive attack on false premises (no WMDs, no role in 9/11) a disaster.

What was the last truly great book you read?

The Law of Love and the Law of Violence,Ł by Leo Tolstoy. I cannot explain this great book, this guide to nonviolence, better than to take a short passage from it, which for me represents the essence of what Tolstoy would have us understand: “True religion consists in establishing the relation of each of us towards the infinite life that surrounds us, the life that unites us to the infinite, and guides us in all our acts.Ł A complete world of wisdom in just that sentence!

Urrea's father, a Yaqui, was blond and blue-eyed (the roles he was given and repercussions of being taken as an American or tourist are interesting), and his mother, an American from NY who never learned Spanish.

The prog is about 50min. The first ~16min are about his great-aunt Teresita, known as a saint (and had risen from the dead plus was a revolutionary), but after that he starts talking about his family -- what formed his mother (Victorian roots) and his father's attitudes as a macho Mexican. They lived in Tijuana and San Diego.

G and I were absolutely captivated by the stories of his mother and father before and after they got married. Gobsmacked, in fact, as the stories, background, unfolded. How traumatic and formative are the experiences of children growing up in their family-world. How incredibly simple are our backgrounds in comparison.
