Proposed Rezoning - Section: North of Griesbach Road, Between Griesbach School and 97th Street:

1. Residential Structures - Maximum height of new buildings adjacent to the north side of Griesbach Road should not exceed that of the existing structures on the south side, which would respect the rights to light of the existing established residents.

2.Commercial Development – Proposed new development at Griesbach Road / 97 Steet corner should be rejected because:
(a) it is adjacent to existing established residential buildings and would depreciate the value of those assets, resulting in a financial loss to the owners.
(b) in its current state, I believe that the Griesbach Road / 97th Street junction is currently unsafe due to there being no traffic lights. Additional traffic from the proposed commercial zone combined with increasing local residential traffic from new dwellings, existing Griesbach School traffic and the current challenges for motorists trying to navigate turning left from Griesbach Road to travel north on 97th Street, would further increase the likelihood of accident.
(c) Existing commercial units constructed around 2019 in the Griesbach south east area still remain vacant so there is no demand-based justification for another commercial zone.

Based on the above, I believe that the commercial development footprint should revert back to a residential zone and be developed pursuant to the height constraints outlined in point 1 above.

Nice to see added density and more greenspace in the amended plan. Hope the City chooses to support this.

Why does the City insist on turning every green space into a building?

Can you add a man-made lake so people in the neighbourhood can do paddleboarding during the summer?
