Council Cut: Squamish Wilson Crescent development receives second reading

A development in Wilson Crescent that would add two apartment buildings to the area has taken another step forward.

Council unanimously voted in favour of passing second reading on July 16, which means the project will now go to public hearing.

LTO Development Inc. is seeking rezoning on three parcels of land — 1145, 1155, and 1165 Wilson Crescent — so it can build two apartment buildings that would each have 24 passive units.

One of the key concerns was increased traffic in the area, and council asked that the company complete a traffic study.

A study was then conducted and a report to council says it found that existing intersection development access "are expected to operate within a reasonable threshold."

 The development is expected to generate 20 vehicle trips onto the study road network during the morning peak hour and 24 vehicle trips onto the study road network during the afternoon or evening peak hour, the report said.

 It made several recommendations, three of which the developer has agreed to implement.

 This would be:

*Establishing an activated, accessible path on their frontage to be secured with a statutory right of way;

*Expanding the current multi-use path along the entirety of Wilson Crescent South from 1.5 metres to 2.4 metres wide;

*Creating a paved pedestrian island at the southwest corner of Wilson Crescent South and Buckley Avenue.
