The Purpose of the proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments is to redesignate and rezone the subject property to permit both residential and limited commercial uses on the subject property.  

The proposed Official Plan Amendment would redesignate the subject property from Residential to Mixed Use Commercial to permit commercial uses as the primary use and continue to permit residential uses on the subject property. 

The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment would rezone the subject property from Residential Second Density (R2) zone to the Mixed-Use Commercial with a Special Exception (C4-XX) zone. The special exception will prohibit some commercial uses and recognize the existing building setbacks along with permitting a reduced minimum landscaped strip along the interior side yard and provide for a reduced rear yard setback to 0.5 metres as well as a reduced distance permitted between residential and commercial entrances to 4.8 metres.

The effect of the proposed Official Plan Amendment is to permit both commercial and residential uses, known as ‘mixed uses’, on the subject property. The Zoning By-law Amendments is to permit commercial as the primary use and maintain residential uses on the subject property while recognizing site specific zoning provisions. 

Any person may attend the public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Official Plan Amendment and/or Zoning By-law Amendment.
