Second look at redevelopment concepts for old Minter Gardens

Collecting input on the redevelopment of the former Minter Gardens property was the goal of an FVRD meeting Monday

Collecting input on the redevelopment of the former Minter Gardens property was the goal of an information meeting Monday night.

The plan is to rezone the land from the existing ‘Tourist Recreation Commercial’ to ‘Suburban Residential-3’ for single-family residential, with a section of homes reserved for 55+ community.

Rosedale residents living around the redevelopment site received written notices last week inviting them to attend the Nov. 21 “development information” meeting at Rosedale Middle.

“The intention of this public meeting is to present initial development concepts based on further design progress,” according to the notices from Wedler Engineering, the project consultants.

Although no formal application has been submitted for rezoning yet, there’s a development concept in place being used to discuss the project by owner/developer Bunker Road Developments Ltd.

Review of the concept has been underway by FVRD, MOTH, along with resident input and comments from the first public information meeting held on Sept. 12, confirmed Gary Darychuck of Wedler Engineering.

The site is at 52892 Bunker Road, and 9980 Lianberis Way in the FVRD.

“Information regarding the proposed development will be presented at the Development Information Meeting,” according to the notice.

Project proponents, FVRD staff, and consultants were on-hand to answer questions and get input on the proposal prior to proceeding.

Minter Gardens officially closed on October 15, 2013.
