On February 26, 2018, City Council directed that a second Public Meeting be held to present a new Comprehensive Zoning By-law for the City.
On March 30, 2017, an Open House was held with the public regarding the City’s newly created Draft Comprehensive Zoning By-law. The new Draft Zoning By-law would repeal and replace the current Zoning By-law 1150/97/81 that was passed in 1982 and all amendments that are in effect.
On June 12, 2017, a statutory public meeting under the Planning Act was held to present the Draft Comprehensive Zoning By-law and allow the public to comment before City Council.
The new Draft Comprehensive Zoning By-law will not be approved by Council at this Public Meeting. Comments provided at this meeting will be considered prior to the new Draft Comprehensive Zoning By-law being finalized and presented for approval.
