EXPLANATORY NOTE CONCERNING BY-LAW NO. 2013-148
AREA AFFECTED: The area affected is the Williamsville Main Street, which is the 1.7 km portion of Princess Street between Division Street and Bath Road/Concession Street (refer to the key map).
PURPOSE: The purpose of the amendment is to implement the recommendations of the Williamsville Main Street Study (2012).
EFFECT: The Williamsville Main Street Study was adopted by Council on February 21, 2012. The proposed amendment to Zoning By-Law No. 8499 is intended to implement the recommendations of the study, including the design guidelines outlined in the document. The goal is to create a main street that is pedestrian-oriented and transit-supportive with mixed use developments.
The proposed Zoning By-Law Amendment will include the creation of a new Williamsville Main Street Commercial ‘C4' Zone in Zoning By-Law No. 8499, which will address permitted uses and regulations related to height control, setbacks, amenity area, parking and loading spaces, and projections into yards. The new ‘C4' Zone will not include existing site-specific zones or existing residential zones in the Williamsville Main Street area. The ‘C4' Zone on Maps 19 and 20 in Zoning By-Law No. 8499 will include the use of a holding (‘H') symbol related to site servicing issues and the submission of a Record of Site Condition.
