Home above the pub The brew pub and restaurant in Village North may have a third floor, for employee housing, providing a housing agreement is registered on title to keep the space for employees. Mark James and Bill Boultbee, developers of the brew pub and restaurant, have applied for rezoning to construct a four-bedroom employee housing unit within the third floor/roof portion of the building. While council was in general support of the application further details, including a housing agreement were requested. It was noted an owner could be considered an employee and council’s intention is not to create a large suite for the owner. The application is still within the shape and volume approved for the building. Muni asked to intervene The Whistler Valley Housing Society has written to council requesting intervention in the proposed development of Crown lands on Lorimer Road, above Myrtle Philip School, and north of Alpine Meadows. The province is believed to want to sell the parcels for development as unrestricted residential housing. The housing society is hoping council can convince the province that a greater need exists for employee housing. The lands next to the school were part of a swap the municipality arranged when it acquired the cultural site on the Blackcomb Benchlands from the province. Council took the letter under advisement.
