Zoning Bylaw put on hold until Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy is completed
September 21, 2017 -
The City is putting the new city-wide Zoning Bylaw on hold as it completes the Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy.
"The final Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy will be such an important part of the City-wide Zoning Bylaw Update that it makes sense to complete it first," says Greg Newman, manager, policy planning.
The Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy will create a policy and regulatory framework to guide infill and intensification in the central area of the city. The study area for the Strategy includes the residential areas of central Kingston – except for the area that will be covered by the North King's Town Secondary Plan and areas of mixed-use including the downtown, harbour area and the Princess Street corridor (including Williamsville Main Street).
The Strategy's recommendations will be incorporated into the second draft of the new City-wide Zoning Bylaw, expected to be released in 2019.
The first draft of the Zoning Bylaw was released on Oct. 27, 2016 for public review and comment.
To engage the community in the Central Kingston Growth and Infill Strategy, a working group will be established through the City's nominations advisory committee this fall. Public consultation on the Strategy is expected to begin in early 2018.
