Notice of a public meeting and complete planning application regarding a proposed Zoning Bylaw amendment affecting parking provisions

July 14, 2015 -

A public meeting will be held on Thursday, Aug. 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.

Purpose and effect of the application: The parking provisions are being modified to ensure that the non-residential parking provisions apply to non-residential uses in the "A" zones in Zoning Bylaw 8499.

The amendment will ensure that the applicable parking provisions apply to these non-residential uses.

No new standards are being created. The existing parking standards will not be altered and the various "A" zones are not proposed to change. This amendment will provide clarification regarding the non-residential parking standards that are to be applied to non-residential uses.

Address of property: The changes do not affect any specific site. The "A" type zones are located though out the area covered by Zoning Bylaw No. 8499, in the central area of the City. Therefore, no map or address is provided.
