September 12, 2017 -

A Public Meeting will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, City Hall, 216 Ontario Street

Address of property:  All lands zoned C4 in Williamsville
Applicant: The Corporation of the City of Kingston
City File Number:  D14-033-2017

Purpose and effect of the proposed amendment: To revise the Williamsville Main Street Commercial "C4" Zone to ensure that an angular plane is applied in the appropriate circumstances by better defining the rear lot line.

This amendment applies to the entire Williamsville Main Street Commercial "C4" Zone; a key map has been provided with this notice.

The City of Kingston proposes an amendment to the Williamsville Main Street Commercial "C4" Zone in Zoning Bylaw 8499 to ensure that an angular plane is applied in the appropriate circumstances by better defining the rear lot line. Some lots in Williamsville are configured so that there is no defined rear lot line, and as such, no rear angular plane has been applied to the property. The proposed amendment will ensure that zoning is consistent with the recently adopted Official Plan (2017), which has policies intended to ensure that an angular plane is applied when development is proposed on a property which abuts a residential area.

Key map: Please see attached key map.

Other applications: There are no other applications related to this proposed Zoning Bylaw amendment.

Additional information about the proposed amendment can be viewed at the planning division at 1211 John Counter Blvd., between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, or the Development and Services Hub (DASH) at Questions? Call Chris Wicke, senior planner, 613-546-4291, ext. 3242.
