Pursuant to section 488(1)(d) and (f) of the Local Government Act, these lands are hereby designated a development permit area for revitalization of an area in which a commercial use is permitted and the establishment of objectives for the form and character of commercial or multifamily residential development.

Whistler Creek is the historical gateway to Whistler anchored by the Creekside ski base. The area has evolved into a mixed use destination for visitors and residents, encompassing ski base area visitor accommodations and a village-scaled mixed commercial development with day skier parking facilities, known as Creekside Village. The area extends to include mixed commercial development on adjacent corners at the Highway 99 and Lake Placid Road intersections, and runs along Lake Placid Road to the Nita Lake Lodge and train station. Revitalization of remaining aging commercial and multi-family residential properties and further improvements to enhance the interconnectivity and pedestrian-orientation of the area through high quality urban design, architecture and landscape architecture will reinforce and strengthen the character, economic viability and historic value of Whistler Creek.
