All lands located within the Commercial/Industrial Development Permit Area, as shown on Schedule O.
Pursuant to section 488(1)(f) of the Local Government Act these lands are hereby designated a development permit area for the establishment of objectives for the form and character of commercial and mixed commercial/industrial development in the resort community outside of the Whistler Village and Whistler Creek core areas. These lands are also designated under section 485 of the Local Government Act as areas in which the municipality may require applicants to provide information on the form and character of the development.
The Commercial/Industrial DPA designation includes a diverse group of visitor accommodation, convenience commercial/industrial service commercial and industrial areas located throughout the municipality. Many of these locations are highly visible from Highway 99 or have businesses which attract visitors and residents to them. The intention is to encourage visually attractive commercial/industrial development that respects the site context and adjacent uses, and supports the role, function and character of the development.
