October 10, 2017 -
A public meeting will be held on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.
in the Press Lounge, Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, 53 Yonge St.
Addresses of properties: 1030 Sunnyside Rd., 303 York St., 1350 Gardiners Rd., 100 Days Rd. and 53 Yonge St.
Applicant: The Corporation of the City of Kingston
City File Number: D14-028-2017
Purpose and effect of the proposed amendment: To permit trade shows and specific day retail sales as an accessory use at municipally-owned arenas. Further, this amendment is to permit trade shows, exhibition events and ancillary sales as an accessory use at the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.
Key map: The proposed amendments affect the properties identified in the key map below.
Background: The use of arenas for trade shows, sales events and uses that are not clearly ancillary to a recreational building or auditorium are not addressed in the zoning bylaws. This creates uncertainty in the existing bylaws for the types of uses can be considered ancillary to a recreational facility or auditorium such as an arena. The amendments to the zoning bylaws will create a new site-specific zone for each of the five properties.
Additional information about the proposed amendments can be viewed at the office of the planning division at 1211 John Counter Blvd., between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, or by accessing the Development and Services Hub (DASH) at www.CityofKingston.ca/DASH.
