Thursday, Aug. 6, at 6:30 p.m. – Council Chambers, City Hall
The City of Kingston planning committee will meet to discuss the matters listed below
beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Williamsville Main Street – City of Kingston – D14-131-2015
The City is proposing an amendment to the Williamsville Main Street Special Policy Area in the Official Plan, and a corresponding amendment to Zoning Bylaw Number 8499, to permit surface parking facilities as a short-term temporary use within the Williamsville Main Street. These changes will allow surface parking for ongoing redevelopment along the Williamsville Main Street, and will provide time for the City to complete a parking strategy for the area.
There is also an error in the boundary of the Williamsville Main Street Special Policy Area shown on Schedule PS-1. The zoning boundary was incorrectly overlaid onto the Official Plan schedule when the policies were adopted in 2013. This is an administrative amendment to correct the boundary line. Additional administrative amendments are also proposed to Zoning Bylaw Number 8499 related to the Williamsville Main Street zoning provisions. These administrative amendments include re-numbering the sections in the C4 Zone and including a reference to the C4 Zone in the General Provisions of the Zoning Bylaw regarding parking provisions.
50 McCauley St., 80 Daly St. and 199 Wilson St. – City of Kingston – D09-033-2015, D14-126-2015 and D12-023-2015
Applications for Official Plan amendment, Zoning ByLaw amendment and Draft Plan of Subdivision. The City of Kingston is proposing a draft plan of subdivision consisting of two residential blocks, the westerly extension of MacCauley Street to Wilson Street and a redesign and reconfiguration of Shannon Park. To accommodate the proposal the applicant is proposing to amend the Official Plan to change the boundaries of the ‘residential ‘ and ‘open space' designations and to change the zoning to permit low to medium density residential on the proposed residential blocks and to change the balance of the lands to a site-specific general recreation park zone.
228-230 Brock St. & 122-126 Sydenham St.– Brock Sydenham Corp. – D14-127-2015
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to renovate the interior of the building to convert it to a total of 15 residential units (containing a mix of one, two and three bedroom units), including two ground floor units that are proposed to be zoned to permit either residential or commercial uses (a total of 33 bedrooms for the entire development). No change to the exterior of the building is proposed.
Secondary Suites – City of Kingston – D14-133-2015
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendments to the former Township of Kingston Zoning Bylaw 76-26 and the former Township of Pittsburgh Zoning Bylaw 32-74 are intended to implement the second unit provisions of Section 16(3) of the Planning Act and Section 3.3.11c. of the City of Kingston Official Plan. The proposed Zoning Bylaw amendments will amend Schedule ‘A' of the former Township of Kingston Zoning Bylaw Number 76-26 as well as definitions and Schedule ‘C' of the former Township of Pittsburgh Zoning Bylaw Number 32-74.
The proposed amendment to the Zoning Bylaws will remove the neighbourhood known as Westbrook from areas permitting as-of-right second residential units. The rural area surrounding Westbrook will also be subject to changes which will implement a holding symbol on the lands which will be required to be removed prior to permitting a secondary residential unit. The purpose of this is to ensure that lots on private services have appropriate water and sanitary services to support a secondary unit.
The proposed amendments will permit secondary residential units within the urban boundary of Kingston East (the former Township of Pittsburgh) and will permit secondary residential units in the rural area south of Highway 401 subject to the removal of a holding symbol. The definition of "principal dwelling unit" in Zoning Bylaw Number 32-74 will be harmonized with the definition found within the other City of Kingston zoning bylaws. As well, the provision prohibiting a dwelling unit located in a basement that is one metre below grade in Zoning Bylaw Number 32-74 is proposed to be deleted.
1233 Midland Ave. – Kingston Midland and Cataraqui Corporation – D14-074-2014
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to rezone the subject property to permit development on the property to occur in two phases. The first phase will consist of five commercial buildings with arterial commercial and convenience commercial uses with frontage on Midland Avenue and Cataraqui Woods Drive. The second phase will consist of either: three commercial buildings with arterial commercial and convenience commercial uses; four storey mixed-use commercial/residential buildings; four-storey residential multiple dwelling buildings; or, a 29-unit residential townhome development.
Administrative Amendments Parking Provisions– D14-129-2015
Application for Zoning Bylawamendment to apply the standard parking provisions that already exist in the Zoning Bylawfor non-residential uses to the "A" Zones. Non-residential uses would be subject to the general parking provisions for each specific use. The proposed changes have no substantive effect on the zones to which they apply, but will serve to clarify the intent and interpretation of the zoning bylaws.
