We have a lady who would like to establish a community root celler (definitely a very cool [no pun intended] idea). She has a piece of R1 land that a developer is willing to give her for it. The problem is that a root celler isn't permitted as a use. We could probably jiggle it as an accessory use, but since there's no main use that approach won't really work. We want to make this as easy as possible for her, but I don't see how we can do it without amending the land use bylaw to permit root cellers as a standalone use (which seems like an unnecessarily long process for what this woman wants to do). Does anyone have any experience in something like this? I was thinking community gardens on private land with a shed might be a similar situation. Any experience with that?
