What’s up at council this week? (Jan. 13)

It’s mid-January and municipal councils are emerging from their winter slumber. The District and City of North Vancouver are off until Jan. 20 but West Vancouver is back Monday night with an idea for a new house, an idea for an old house, and a look back at 2019.

Following a year-in-review presentation from Mayor Mary-Ann Booth, council is set to mull a proposal for a new house at 4358 Ross Crescent in the Stearman Beach area. That site “may be subject to flooding,” according to a district staff report.

The evening features a public hearing on the proposed subdivision for the Boyd House at 985 Duchess Ave.

The owner is applying to split the 9,123-square-foot lot into two parcels, adding a new home on the smaller portion of the site while retaining the Ron Thom-designed heritage house. The proposal also includes a plan to allow short-term rentals in both properties.

Thunderbird Marina is also on the agenda, as council is set to vote on changes that would allow boat and engine sales, repairs and storage for boats taller than 12 feet.
