Whistler Municipal Hall

Whistler Bylaw Update
Will Reduce Red Tape at RMOW Hall

Local builders are applauding an update to the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) land-use procedures and fees bylaw designed to reduce red tape at municipal hall. 

Given first three readings on Sept. 20 and adopted on Oct. 4, the proposed bylaw will streamline the permitting approval process by delegating some decision-making authority to RMOW staff. In alignment with the new Official Community Plan, the update will also establish precise development approval information requirements for zoning amendments, development permits (DP) and temporary-use permits (TUPs). 

“The process efficiencies will result in cost and staff time savings,” said RMOW manager of development planning Melissa Laidlaw in a report to council on Sept. 20. 

Chris Addario, president of the Sea to Sky Home Builders Association, welcomed the new bylaw, and attempts by the RMOW to streamline the permitting process.
