Community Benefits Guideline – City of Kingston
Section 37 of the Planning Act allows municipalities to seek out "community benefits" when considering development projects that seek, through a zoning by-law amendment, additional height and / or density. Community benefits include facilities, services or matters such as enhanced public amenity space, green infrastructure, and contributions towards affordable housing. The City's Planning, Building and Licensing Services Department has developed a Community Benefit Guideline to provide a clear framework for the negotiation of community benefits. The Guideline is intended to help City staff, and the public, better-understand when and how the City will seek to negotiate community benefits under Section 37 of the Planning Act. A report recommending that Council endorse staff's use of the Guideline will be presented to Planning Committee on November 15, 2018.
