Development Approval Process

The development approval process should be as quick, cheap, and predictable as possible. No one is better off when developers waste valuable time and money waiting for approvals or commissioning futile reports. That just increases costs and drives away business.

Part of the problem we have is our out-of-date municipal plan and development regulations [See: City Planning]. As our development regulations fall farther and farther behind the times, more and more development proposals will need costly, time-consuming zoning changes. I will push to make sure the planning process doesn’t fall behind again.

In the meantime, I will do what I can to make the existing system work as quickly and predictably as possible, while ensuring that I understand the issues and listen to those involved.Paperwork
