All lands located within the Multi-Family Residential Development Permit Area, as shown on Schedule P.
Pursuant to section 488(1)(f) of the Local Government Act, these lands are designated as a development permit area for the establishment of objectives for the form and character of multi-family residential development. 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 Multi-Family Residential DPA designation covers all areas outside of the Whistler Village and Whistler Creek DPAs with multi-family developments. The goal with this OCP update is to provide a set of general design guidelines for the various multi-family locations to guide new or redevelopment proposals in these areas. The intention is to encourage visually attractive developments that respond to natural features and strengthen the character of existing neighbourhoods through designs that complement adjacent land uses, are scaled and organized to respect Whistler’s mountain village character, and enhance the resort experience of Whistler.
