4.1 Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment – Georgian Traditions
The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment (Town File No. Z-2008-09) pertains to land located on the south side of Trott Boulevard and backing onto Highway No. 26 West, just west of Balsam Street. The subject property has a total lot frontage of approximately 60.0 metres on Trott Boulevard and a total lot area of approximately 0.92 hectares. The land is legally described as Part of Block D on Registered Plan 1657, Town of Collingwood, County of Simcoe and known municipally as57 Trott Boulevard.
The subject property is designated Residential in Schedule ‘A’ entitled Land Use Plan and further defined as Residential Density ‘A’ in Schedule ‘C’ entitled Residential Density Plan in the Town of Collingwood Official Plan, as amended. The Town of Collingwood Zoning By-law No. 87-61, as amended, identifies the subject property as being in the Holding Residential Sixth Density Exception Twenty-Eight (‘H’R6-28) zone.
 
THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF the proposed Zoning
By-law Amendment is to rezone the subject property from the Holding Residential Sixth Density Exception Twenty-Eight (‘H’R6-28) zone to a the Residential Sixth Density Exception Twenty-Eight (R6-28) zone, in order to permit the expansion of the existing Seniors Retirement Home from the present 70 bed suites to 106 bed suites. 
 
The principle change proposed with the rezoning is to remove holding provisions which require 90% occupancy for the existing development and completion of a post development traffic and parking impact study for a one year period, prior to the proposed expansion preceding. A related application involving site plan approval for the proposed expansion has been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board (File No. DC-2006-37). 
 
4.2Proposed Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law AmendmentLibrary
 
The proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments (Town File Nos. OPA-2008-03 and Z-2008-08) pertain to two (2) parcels of land located at the south-east corner of Second Street and Maple Street. The parcels which include the library and the detached dwelling to the south, have a lot frontage of 71 metres (234 feet) on Second Street and a total lot area of 3,405m2 (0.84 acres). The library has a municipal address of 100 Second Street and it is legally described as Lots 1, 2, 3 and laneway Registered Plan No. 477. The house has a municipal address of 111 Maple Street and it is legally described as North Part of Lot 23, east Maple Street, Registered Plan 73.  
 
The subject properties are presently designated Residential on Schedule ‘A’, Land Use Plan, and Low Density on Schedule ‘C’ Residential Density Plan, of the Town of Collingwood Official Plan. The subject properties are presently zoned Community Facility (CF) in the Town of Collingwood Zoning By-law No. 87-61, as amended.
 
THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the proposed Official Plan Amendment is to amend Schedule ‘A’ to re-designate the property Downtown Core and to establish a policy limiting the permitted uses to those which will complement the area such as business offices, a funeral home, assembly hall, private club, public and community service uses and dwelling units in a portion of a commercial building.    
 
THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to rezone the subject properties from the Community Facility (CF) zone to a Holding Special General Commercial Exception (‘H’C4-E) zone in order to permit the re-use of the existing library building and the expansion of the parking lot.
 
An exception to the ‘H’C4 zone is proposed to limit the list of uses permitted to such uses as business, professional and/or administrative offices, a funeral home, assembly hall, private club, fraternal lodge, private school, public and community service uses and dwelling units in a portion of a commercial building. The proposed exception zone will also vary the minimum exterior side yard dimension and the width of the landscape buffer strip required between parking spaces and a dwelling. The proposed zoning classification placed in the subject property may also be the subject of a Holding “H” symbol that will not be removed until such time as Council for the Town of Collingwood is satisfied that certain conditions have been fulfilled in order for the orderly development of the lands.
 
4.3 Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment – ICBL
 
The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment (Town File No. Z-2006-26) pertains to many properties generally located between Elm Street and the western boundary of the municipality. The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment deletes a number of permitted uses from specific properties. The uses being deleted include Financial Institution, Motor Vehicle Body Shop, Motor Vehicle Gasoline Bar, Motor Vehicle Sales Establishment, Motor Vehicle Service Station and Motor Vehicle Wash. 
More specifically:

The location of the C5-2 zone is shown below.
