District of Squamish has received a development permit application for Phase 2 of Garibaldi Spring project.
The permit would allow permission to build 128 ground-oriented townhomes. The Terrain Townhomes will be part of the Phase 2 of the Garibaldi Spring project by Polygon Homes.
Polygon was given the go-ahead on the 350-unit project in 2018 by the Council. The developers first proposed a 460-unit development, but then reduced the unit count to 395 and finally to 350 units.
The Garibaldi Springs development proposes a mix of ecological reserve, park and multi-unit development on the 48.3 hectare of previous golf course site located on the east side of Tantalus Road, between Dowad Drive to the north and Newport Ridge Drive to the south.
The development plan consists of phased development of 310 homes, and a mix of townhomes, duplexes and cottages is proposed.
Housing comprises 21.7% of the site, while 75% of the area is proposed to be dedicated to District ownership as ecological reserve for conservation, habitat protection/restoration and limited public use. The District will be responsible for management of park, trail and riparian areas proposed to be dedicated as public land.
Access to the site is provided through two locations at Dowad Drive and Newport Ridge Drive, and approximately three kilometre of multi-use trails are proposed to be located primarily on existing cart paths.
