Residential Taxes to Increase by 15% on Single Family Homes with the Adoption of New Official Community Plan for North Vancouver

The City’s current population of 51,870 people, is certain to grow by another 9,960 which results from an additional 4,743 units already approved for or under construction, or completed but empty, each housing 2.1 persons, bringing us to a current population housing capability of 61,830 people, and more being considered.

We’re at 2031 population targets, 18 years ahead of plan, and we’re changing the OCP to add even more people, without a thought to motor vehicle traffic and parking implications, yet nearly every family has a car if not two.

The new OCP also imbeds the right to have a coach house or laneway house in addition to a basement suite on each single-family residential (“RS-1”) lot. Potentially three families per lot! This singular change is estimated to cause RS-1 property values to increase by $150,000 to $250,000, resulting in a $650 to $1,000 annual municipal tax increase to all RS-1 home owners, whether you build a coach house or not. As soon as the developers buy 3 or 4 homes in your area, knock them down and build out to the new OCP capacity, your taxes will go up a minimum of 15%, more if you live on a corner lot. We oppose these changes and we strongly urge you to do the same by signing the attached petition. More information at;
