The applicant proposes a site-specific zone to reflect the uses as proposed in the Official Plan amendment.

Items for discussion/recommendation
153 Brock St. – Joe Ruffolo and Robert Melo – D14-030-2017
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to convert the commercial spaces within the existing structure into a total of three residential dwelling units. The property located at 153 Brock St. is to contain two dwelling units: unit one on the first floor and unit two on the second and third floors. The property located at 155 Brock St. is to contain one dwelling unit. Relief is required from the Zoning Bylaw to permit three dwelling units within the existing structure at 153 and 155 Brock St. The applicant is also requesting relief from the Zoning Bylaw to permit residential use on the ground floor on both properties and to reduce the minimum required amenity area.
Williamsville – Princess Street Corridor – City of Kingston – D14-033-2017
The City of Kingston proposes an amendment to the Williamsville Main Street Commercial "C4" Zone in Zoning Bylaw 8499 to ensure that rear yard setback and angular plane provisions are applied adjacent to a residential zone. Currently, some lots in Williamsville are configured in such a way that there is no defined rear lot line, and as such, no rear yard setback or rear angular plane has been applied to the property. This has the potential to compromise the ability to achieve a transition in built form and may, accordingly, result in adverse effects to abutting residential uses (i.e. shadowing, loss of privacy, etc.). The proposed amendment will ensure that the zoning is consistent with the recently adopted Official Plan (2017), which has policies intended to ensure that angular planes and setbacks are applied when development is proposed on a property which abuts a residential area.
