Explanatory Note Concerning By-Laws
No. 2013-99, 2013-100, And 2013-101
AREA AFFECTED: The former Township of Kingston, the former Township of Pittsburgh and the former City of Kingston.
PURPOSE: The purpose of the application is to harmonize the industrial establishment parking ratios in Zoning By-Law Nos. 8499, 32-74 and 76-26.
EFFECT: The effect of the by-laws is to have the same parking requirement for an Industrial Establishment located anywhere within the City of Kingston. This will update the parking ratio to be one (1) parking space per 100m2 of gross floor area. This is consistent with By-law 96-259, the Downtown and Harbour Zoning By-Law.
KEY MAP: No key map is provided as all industrial lands within the City of Kingston are affected by this by-law.
The above is an explanation of the provisions of the amendment to the Zoning By-Law. For accurate reference, these amendments and the original By-Laws No. 8499, 32-74 and 76-26 should be consulted at the Municipal Offices during regular business hours.
