Everall project moving forward

A five-unit townhouse development proposed for Everall Street in White Rock will go to a public hearing next month, following unanimous council support for the project.

Council Monday gave first and second reading to a bylaw that would rezone 1434 Everall St. to allow the development, after endorsing the plan at the April 11 land use and planning meeting.

According to a report from Paul Stanton, the city’s director of planning and development services, the proposal is “similar and complementary” to a recently approved and under-construction nine-unit project at 1456 Everall St.

If approved, the 1434 Everall St. site would require excavation and the removal of existing mature trees. Six of 12 trees targeted for removal are sick, he noted. They will be replaced with 21 trees.

The applicants have proposed to retain about 25 per cent of the trees, Stanton said.

At the land use and planning meeting, Couns. Lynne Sinclair and Grant Meyer praised the proposal.

Meyer described it as a development that “is going to fit in with the neighbourhood extremely well.”

A public hearing is to take place May 9.
