    Draft Zoning Bylaw

    Draft Zoning Bylaw No. 729, 2023 Now Available

    The Village began the process of the Zoning Bylaw rewrite in 2021 to help create a bylaw that is easier to read, consistent, and addresses the issues that have resulted in a significant number of zoning amendment applications.  Further, the bylaw was designed to help increase housing stock by allowing infill and promoting greater density.  Lastly, the bylaw has addressed the issue of Short-Term Rentals and has established regulations that strike a balance between housing affordability and ensuring existing housing stock is available for residents of the community.

    Throughout this process, the Village has engaged with the public and responded to their questions and concerns.  The public’s comments and concerns were worked into the bylaw to ensure this bylaw works for the majority of residents in our community.  Public engagement/feedback opportunities included:

    Public Consultation & Feedback Opportunities Dates
    Public Engagement Session  Held during the last half of 2021
    Virtual Public Webinar  Held on November 2, 2021
    Survey issued  Last quarter of 2021, yielded 217 responses 
    Preliminary Draft Bylaw present to Council August 2022
    Revised draft Bylaw based on Council’s comments made public March 17, 2023
    Zoning Bylaw Open House March 20, 2023
    Nakusp Café (with Zoning Bylaw table) April 4, 2023
    Written public comments received until  April 4, 2023

    Significant revisions were made based on the feedback received from the public from mid-March to early April and the direction provided by Council at the April 24, Regular Meeting of Council (See Section J.4 of the meeting minutes) was worked into the bylaw.   

    The Village of Nakusp is pleased to make public the Draft Village of Nakusp Zoning Bylaw, No. 729, 2023.  This bylaw will be presented to Council for consideration of first and second readings at the June 12, 2023, regular council meeting.  A public hearing will be held during the June 26th, 2023 regular council meeting.
