Amenity area review – Consultant briefing with Dillon Consulting
Dillon Consulting will present the final report of the Amenity Area Review. The review examined the legislative context to how amenity area can be regulated, the existing City of Kingston regulations for amenity area provision, the amenity area regulations from other municipalities, and some recent development proposals to identify patterns and trends. The recommendations from the review include: changing the definition of "amenity area" in the Official Plan and Zoning Bylaws to one consistent definition; requiring amenity area to be provided on a per-unit basis; providing new rates for amenity area provision; adding minimum functional design principles and standards for amenity areas into the Official Plan, Zoning Bylaws, and urban design guidelines; and removing Play Space requirements from the zoning bylaws. The recommendations of the review will be implemented through the 5 Year Official Plan Update and the new Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw.
