Proposed Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment

The proposed Official Plan Amendment is minor and technical in nature and has been prepared to consider a number of amendments that were identified during the preparation of the Town’s up-dated Zoning By-law. The amendments shall include:
  1. Deleting the definitions of “Shopping Plaza” (Section 10.51A) and “Shopping Centre, Enclosed” (Section 10.51) and revising the definition of “Shopping Centre” (Section 10.50). 
  2. Clarify the language which permits residential uses in commercially designated areas.  This language appears in a number of sections including the Downtown Core provisions (Section 4.4.4.2), Mixed Use Commercial (Section 4.4.7.4) and Local Commercial (Section 4.4.9.2).  
  3. Correct a couple of small mapping inconsistencies which staff have discovered including designating the east side of Hurontario Street, south of Hume Street (325 Hurontario Street) Downtown Core and designating the eastern portion of the Blue Mountain Chrysler site  
  4. Re-designate and re-zone the property at 10 Minto Street acquired by Hanna Motors in September, 2009 Mixed Use Commercial Exception Three (MUC-3).  And re-zone the property Mixed Use Commercial Exception C4 exception to permit a car dealership.
THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the proposed Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment is to ensure that there is conformity between the Town’s newly passed Zoning By-law and the Official Plan.  The Town is also re-zoning the property located at 10 Minto Street to permit a car dealership.
