Active Recreation - Activities of a formal nature and often performed with others, requiring equipment and/or the use of motorized vehicles and taking place at prescribed places and sites.
Amenities - Natural or created features that enhance the aesthetic quality or visual appeal or makes more attractive or satisfying a particular property, place or area. Amenities may include gardens, parks, playgrounds, tennis courts, ball fields, club houses, trails, swimming pools and other similar items.
Basic Maximum Number – The number of dwelling units that would be allowed on a site using the standard Zoning Bylaw Provisions and/or Subdivision Rules and Regulations as determined by a Conventional Yield Plan.
Common Area – Any land area, other than Open Space, set aside for common ownership as a result of an OSRD, including areas for Common Facilities.
Hard Stormwater Management Techniques – Structural stormwater management
techniques including, but not limited to, inlets, and subsurface leaching facilities. infrastructure and often result in significant
catch basins, subsurface piping, stormwater These techniques generally require heavy alteration of the site hydrology.
Homeowner’s Association – A private non-profit organization (corporation, association, or other legal entity) established by the developer to manage, maintain, support, and finance the common facilities and common open space of an OSRD, and to enforce certain covenants and restrictions.
