This is the sign that's currently posted at Modesto and Wiltshire, about the rezoning of the development to allow for full basements -- and therefore, full basement suites which, as the sign says, will be "exempted from floor area calculations."

Proposed Rezoning for 10680 and 10625 Delsom Crescent, Delta, BCIf you'd like to comment on this rezoning, here's their contact information.
File No: LU005752
Applicant's Name: Pacific Land Group
Telephone No: 604-501-1624
The property is presently zoned as RS-8 and CD-348-1 for single family development (3.81 cm/1.5 inches)
The purpose of this application is to amend Delta's Zoning Bylaw No. 2570, 1977 to permit in-ground basements for 88 lots within Delsom Estates provided that at least 50% of the basement is in-ground. It is proposed that in-ground basements would be exempted from floor area calculations. Notwithstanding the above, the dwelling must still meet the maximum height calculation of 10.5 metres (34.4 feet).
Please note that their posted email address is wrong. The correct email address to send your feedback to is firstname.lastname@example.org. (The conspiracy theorist in me hopes that this isn't actually some kind of sabotage of the community feedback process.)
