Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017 at 6:30 p.m.
Council Chambers, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
The City of Kingston planning committee will meet to discuss the matters listed below beginning at 6:30 p.m.
48A Point St. Mark Dr. – Homestead Land Holdings Ltd. – D09-005-2013 & D14-012-2013
Applications for Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit the development of an apartment building with a total of 95 residential units, on-site vehicular parking, bicycle parking and apartment complex amenities. The current proposal has been revised from the initial application submission received in 2013. Specific changes include reducing the proposed height from eight storeys to seven storeys, increasing the setback from the water to an average of 5.5 metres and adjusting the footprint of the building to remove it from the floodplain.
The site is designated Marina in the 2010 Official Plan and zoned Water Area ‘P2' Zone in Zoning Bylaw Number 8499 and Tourist Commercial ‘CT' zone in Zoning Bylaw Number 32-74. The subject lands are adjacent to the Rideau Canal, which is designated as a National Historic Site, a Canadian Heritage River and is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
On June 9, 2017, the applicant (Homestead Land Holdings Limited) appealed the proposed Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment applications to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), based on the approval authority's failure to make decision within the prescribed amount of time. As such, the public meeting scheduled for Oct. 19, 2017 is for information purposes rather than a statutory public meeting.
In accordance with Section 37 of the Planning Act and Sections 9.5.25 – 9.5.30 of the 2010 Official Plan, the City will be seeking possible community benefits if any increase in height or density is approved. Possible suggestions for community benefits can be provided by the public on Oct. 19, 2017 at the public meeting.
Items for discussion/recommendation:
783 King St. West – Paul Doherty – D14-005-2017
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit the construction of two, multi-unit residential buildings, each containing three, three-bedroom dwelling units. The applicant is proposing on-site amenity space in the rear yard, one vehicular parking space and one bicycle parking space per dwelling unit on-site and exterior access from each dwelling unit.
225 King St. East – Frontenac Club Inc. – D35-004-2017
Applications for Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment to recognize the long-standing use of the property for an inn, limited service restaurant, meeting facility, and special event venue, as well as broaden the permitted uses to include other commercial and residential uses appropriate for the existing location and structure.
299 Concession St. – Trans Eastern Communications – D14-024-2017
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit a broader range of commercial and office uses, including medical and dental offices and clinics. The current site-specific zoning is the result of an amendment in 2011 that proposed the construction of an additional office building, and the permitted uses were modified to reflect the amount of parking associated with the existing and proposed buildings at that time. The proposed additional office building was never constructed. The owner does not intend to introduce any new development on the property and is proposing to re-instate a wider range of permitted uses for the existing three-storey office building
306-308 Montreal St. – Dennis Perrault & FoTenn Consultants Inc. – D14-026-2017
Application for amendment to the Zoning Bylaw to permit the potential conversion of the ground floor of the existing building to two, two-bedroom dwelling units, for a total of four dwelling units in the existing building. The requested amendment would maintain existing permissions for small-scale commercial uses on all or a portion of the ground floor. In response to public input, staff worked with the applicant to expand permissions for compatible small-scale commercial uses on the ground floor of the existing building. A scoped ‘Professional Office' use permission has been included in the recommended Zoning Bylaw amendment. Permission for a ‘Live Work unit' and a ‘Recreational Use' is also included. In addition to providing permission for up to four residential units on the subject property, the recommended site-specific zone recognizes the location, dimensions and number of available parking spaces on the property as being appropriate for the permitted uses.
