Explanatory Note Concerning Bylaw Numbers 2016-129, 2016-130, 2016-131, 2016-132 and 2016-133

Area Affected: City-wide amendment

Purpose: To amend Zoning Bylaw Numbers 8499 (former City of Kingston), 96-259
(Downtown and Harbour Zoning Bylaw), 76-26 (former Township of Kingston), 97-102
(Cataraqui North Zoning Bylaw), and 32-74 (former Township of Pittsburgh) to include
the following definition of a "Casino Gaming Facility":

"Casino Gaming Facility means any building developed and used for the purpose of
providing slot machine or table game wagering or betting, authorized and licensed by the
Province of Ontario."

Effect: By including the definition of a casino gaming facility in the zoning bylaw, it
will make this use distinctive from all other types of entertainment, recreational and/or
commercial uses. A casino gaming facility will not be listed as a permitted use in any of
the zones in the bylaw; therefore, if someone wishes to propose a casino gaming facility,
they will be required to submit an application for a site-specific zoning by-law amendment.
The proposed zoning bylaw amendment and approach is consistent with the Official Plan
policies regarding casino gaming facilities, which were approved through settlement by
the Ontario Municipal Board on November 10, 2015 (case number PL140920).

Key Map: This is a City-wide amendment only affecting the definitions section (text) of
the zoning bylaw; therefore no key map is provided with this notice.

The above is an explanation of the provisions of the amendment to the Zoning Bylaw.
For accurate reference, this amendment and the original Bylaws should be consulted
at the Municipal Offices during regular business hours.
