Downtown Development Moratorium?


Recommended Posts

Robin Cape has proposed a downtown development moratorium until the master plan can be completed, which may take a year. The idea is, to not continue approving anything downtown until we're sure what we want downtown to look like in the end.

I, personally find that to be preposterous. The current CBD zoning regs and review process pretty much ensure that nothing that's absolutely objectionable will get built. While the master plan will provide structure and direction for downtown growth, I think that an outright ban on all development in the CBD is exactly what we DON'T want to happen. Downtown may very well stagnate for a year anyway because of the economic downturn. Don't make it even more hopeless by using council's regulated authority to mandate stagnation.
