The Cheekeye Neighbourhood Plan is presented by Sqomish Sea to Sky Developments Limited Partnership, a partnership between Squamish Nation (Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw) and local developers Squamish Cornerstone Developments LP.  Offering the community of Squamish a long term supply of affordable and diverse housing, this development includes up to 540 small and medium sized single family lots, some with a potential for secondary suites, multifamily, townhomes and a ‘tiny home’ village (provided through flex zoning).  The community is modeled on Smart Growth principles and features green building criteria, unparalleled parks and public space and a network of trails connecting every unit in the development.  The compact and accessible community will promote healthy and active living and provide a commercial node within walking distance for Brackendale.

COMMUNITY AMENITIES
  • Debris Barrier

    Development will cover the cost of planning, design and construction of the debris barrier as well as a portion of the ongoing maintenance expenses.  This mitigation is designed to protect not only the new development but also significant existing infrastructure (Highway 99, BC Hydro, Don Ross Secondary School, Brackendale Elementary, etc.), the Squamish Nation reserve lands and neighbouring Brackendale.

    Mitigation works will be required by the District of Squamish if the Cheekeye Development does not proceed.

  • Brackendale Farmers Institute Park

    This development will facilitate the dedication of approximately 50 acres of land as part of the Squamish Nation’s acquisition of the Cheekeye lands.

  • Public Access Park, Open Space & Trails

    The Cheekeye/Brackendale neighbourhoods will benefit from the extensive park and open spaces offered by the development. The parkland proposed includes 12.2 acres of internal parks and green corridors as well as the 50 acre Brackendale Farmers Institute Park.

  • Community Cash Contribution

    $1.5 Million cash contribution for community benefit (Distribution subject to direction from DOS Mayor & Council).

  • Park Improvements

    Neighbourhood parks will be open to the public and will feature improvements focused on play including a pump park, bouldering wall and natural playground.

  • Ray Peters Trail

    The importance of the Ray Peters Trail to the community is significant, this development will formalize a 9.3 acre trail right of way, enhance the trail and extend it through the Brackendale Farmers Institute Park.

  • Sidewalks and Traffic Calming

    One kilometer of new sidewalks on Ross Road will provide enhanced pedestrian safe routes to schools and the neighbourhood centre. Traffic calming measures on both Ross Road and within the Cheekeye neighbourhood will be implemented reduce speeds and increase safety.

  • Rental Housing

    $18,000,000 will be put toward affordable restricted rental units (secured in perpetuity) constructed by the developer in the neighbourhood centre. It is the applicant’s preference to work with the District (or their Housing Authority) to leverage the contribution and capture funding from senior levels of government.  This will maximize the number of affordable housing units that can be produced.

  • Transit Hub, Car Share and Charging Station

    A transit hub and car share program will be provided at the Nieghbourhood Centre.  The new demand for transit will increase levels of service for the entire Brackendale community.
