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.

Public Meeting

575 Princess St. – 605 Princess St. Ltd. – D35-005-2016

Application for Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment to develop a mixed-use apartment building, containing a total of 371 residential dwelling units in a 10-storey building, with commercial uses limited to the ground floor. Specific changes to the overall development plan include reducing the lands subject to the development application (lands on the south side of Princess Street are no longer part of this application), reducing the overall height of the proposed building, reducing the number of proposed residential dwelling units and commercial floor area, introducing a through lane connecting Frontenac Street and Albert Street, increasing the amount of on-site parking and amenity space and establishing greater façade articulation along Princess Street.

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 current 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.

194 Mack St. - Justin Armitage & Matt Pettie – D14-027-2017

Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit the construction of a two-storey triplex with an elevated basement to contain three, three-bedroom dwelling units. A driveway from Mack Street will provide access to four proposed parking spaces on the west side of the property. The proposal requires zoning relief from provisions such as maximum permitted residential density, maximum permitted lot coverage, minimum yard setbacks, and the location of parking spaces.


Items for discussion/recommendation:

85 Sydenham St. – Michael Hickey – D14-014-2017

Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to construct a two-storey addition to an existing detached garage which will contain a two-bedroom dwelling unit. The subject property is developed with a single-detached dwelling containing a three-bedroom dwelling unit with a detached garage. The proposal requires relief from the minimum required lot area to allow two dwelling units on the property and relief from maximum lot coverage.

270 Frontenac St. – Michael Willis-O'Connor – D14-004-2017

Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to demolish an existing single-family dwelling and develop a three-storey semi-detached dwelling. A semi-detached dwelling is a permitted use in the site-specific A.417 zone. This proposal requires relief from the minimum lot area for two dwelling units and relief from minimum aggregate side-yard requirement.

1707, 1709, 1711, 1713 & 1715 Executive Ave. – 1517849 Ontario Limited o/a Greene Homes – D14-023-2017

Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit the construction of wider single-detached dwellings on three pie-shaped lots plus a lot on either side of the grouping, for a total of five lots. The subject vacant lots are located within the Midland Park Phase 4, Stages 2-4 Subdivision (Registered Plan 13M-104).
