CONCLUSION

 

The applicant proposes to develop a Recreational Service Facility (Yoga Studio) in a portion of an existing commercial building located at 3775 Pasqua Street. The property is within the DCD5 – Direct Control District for Lakeview South – Pasqua Street, in which a Recreational Service Facility is a discretionary use. The property currently accommodates a variety of local commercial uses.

 

The proposal complies with the development standards and regulations contained in the Regina Zoning Bylaw No. 9250 (Zoning Bylaw) and is consistent with the policies in Design Regina: The Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 2013-48 (OCP). Accordingly, the Administration recommends approval.

 

BACKGROUND

 

An application has been received to develop a Recreational Service Facility in the form of a Yoga Studio in the DCD5 – Direct Control District for Lakeview South – Pasqua Street located at 3775 Pasqua Street in the Lakeview South Subdivision.

 


This application is being considered pursuant to the Zoning Bylaw, the OCP and The Planning and Development Act, 2007 (Act).

 

Pursuant to subsection 56(3) of the Act, City Council may establish conditions for discretionary uses based on; nature of the proposal (e.g. site, size, shape and arrangement of buildings) and aspects of site design (e.g. landscaping, site access, parking and loading), but not including the colour, texture or type of materials and architectural details.

 

DISCUSSION

 

The applicant proposes to develop a Recreational Service Facility in the form of a Yoga Studio within an existing 218 m2 unit, which is part of a multi-tenant building located at 3775 Pasqua Street. The property is within the DCD5 – Direct Control District for Lakeview South – Pasqua Street. The purpose of this Direct Control District is to provide for sensitive development of the subject lands due to their proximity to both the airport and adjacent residential lands.

 

The property at 3775 Pasqua Street is currently developed with two multi-tenant buildings and accommodates a variety of local commercial uses. The previous use of the unit was a Personal Service Establishment; however the space is currently vacant. There is no requirement for new parking stalls as the parking requirements are the same for both the previous use and the proposed use and the proposal does not require any site upgrades. Therefore there will be no impact on site design, building area or parking requirements.

 

Surrounding land uses include other commercial lands within the DCD5 – Direct Control District for Lakeview South – Pasqua Street to the north, low density residential development to the east, 25th Avenue to the south and Pasqua Street to the west.

 

RECOMMENDATION IMPLICATIONS

 

Financial Implications
