A public meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan.18, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
Addresses of properties: 700 Gardiners Rd., 965 Cataraqui Woods Dr., 1215 Woodhaven Dr., 1301 Woodhaven Dr., 1138 Highway 15 and 1232 Highway 15
Applicants: Taggart (Gardiners) Corp., Tamarack (Cataraqui West) Corp., Tamarack (Cataraqui West 2) Corp. Tamarack (Rideau) Corp.
Co-applicant: Fotenn Consulting Inc.
City file numbers: D14-039-2017 & D14-040-2017
Purpose and effect of the proposed amendment: To amend an existing general zoning provision of Zoning Bylaws 76-26 and 32-74 regulating residential lots containing more than one zone, providing greater flexibility in the lot fabric for the applicant's current and future applications for Final Plan of Subdivision.
The sites municipally known as 700 Gardiners Rd., 965 Cataraqui Woods Dr., 1215 Woodhaven Dr., and 1301 Woodhaven Dr. are currently zoned ‘R2-32-H', ‘R2-33-H', ‘R2-38-H', ‘R2-39-H', ‘R2-40-H' and ‘R2-42-H', ‘R2-45-H', ‘R2-46-H' and R3-32-H' zones in Zoning Bylaw Number 76-26, as amended. The sites municipally known as 1138 and 1232 Highway 15 are currently zoned ‘R12-3-H' Zone and ‘R12-4-H' zone in Zoning Bylaw Number 32-74, as amended.
The applicant is proposing to amend the zoning of a general provision within Zoning Bylaw Number 76-26, Section 5(13)(c), and Zoning Bylaw Number 32-74, Section 5(11)(d), that applies to a number of site-specific residential zones within portions of the draft-approved subject lands. The intent is for lots that have dual zoning to no longer have the zone boundaries within them considered as lot boundaries for purposes of zoning interpretation. The proposed changes would result in the use of each portion of the lot being in accordance with the provisions of the applicable zone. In the case of a conflict, the more restrictive provision(s) would apply. The proposed amendment is consistent with the draft provision under Section 2.5.3 of the current draft comprehensive zoning bylaw released by the City for public input in October of 2016.
Key maps: The proposed amendment applies to the geographic areas of draft-approved portions of the Woodhaven, West Village subdivisions in Kingston West and Riverview subdivision in Kingston East (see key maps).
