Smithers Secondary Suites Survey

The Town of Smithers is asking people to complete a Secondary Suites Survey to help Smithers Town Council review the regulations impacting secondary suites. In Smithers, a secondary suite refers to a separate self-contained dwelling located within a single family home. Council is considering the following bylaw changes:

1) Permit secondary suites in the Single Family Residential Zone (R-1);
2) Permit secondary suites in other housing forms (i.e. duplexes, townhomes);
3) Charge homes with a secondary suite an additional 40% of the full residential rate for water and sewer services and an additional 100% for garbage collection only if a second cart is required.
4) Remove the requirement for the homeowner to live in either the home or the secondary suite.

Paper copies of this survey as well as additional background information are available on the Town of Smithers website. The survey closes on May 27th, 2011.
