I was very surprised to hear the RDEK board had deduced there was no appetite for secondary suites in Area F.
Where and how did Area F Director Wendy Booth conduct her survey to come to such a conclusion? I couldn’t make it to the town hall meeting where this was on the agenda (I was working), but I neither read nor heard anything that came from it suggesting secondary suites were unwanted in Area F. As someone who has spent many years in the area living in (illegal) secondary suites and is considering purchasing a home in the area (with a potentially legal secondary suite to help my mortgage), this is an issue that is of significant importance to me. I understand that “some portions” of Area F would be excluded from the new zoning bylaw. Perhaps she could elaborate on which areas those would be?
