It’s not about the look of the development
It’s not about aesthetic heritage
It’s about saying no to zone changes
- It’s about saying no to developments that wish to change zoning to suit their purposes which uses the neighbourhood for business.
- It’s about saying no to large scale constant construction, and, disruption of the way you live downtown.
- It’s about saying no to your neighbourhood being seen as a place of commerce — commercial interests speculating on commercial gain — instead of it being seen as a place where we live, work and grow.
The neighbours of St. Luke’s Precinct are asking people to stop and think about how they live and how their cohesively zoned neighbourhood reflects the area we love.
Save your zoning. Say no to zone changes as they will effect everyone.

Date: Nov 13, 7pm, Rm 305, City Hall
Residents of St. Luke's Precinct, please attend this meeting and voice your opinion on this development that so far proposes to require zoning changes. Zone changes anywhere within the precinct will cause a precedent of further zone change as stated by planning. Hang on to your zoning and protect your hood.
Stay tuned for more info.
A neighbour of the St. Luke's Precinct has informed us that surveyors have been measuring the Dalewood Apartments property at 1367 Elgin Street.
Part or all if this property is owned by Maurice Desrochers development group / Executive Furnished Rentals. Desrochers has previously indicated a desire to rezone this property for 8 story condominiums.
A site rezone of this nature would mean a precedent rezone for the whole precinct.
Stay tuned for more information.
Confirmation from the city is that the developer is intending on building 2 detached single family homes. They have begun the first on the south most lot but have yet to propose a plan for the 2nd. This first house will conform to the current zoning and needs only minor variance approval.
