PROPOSAL: A public hearing will be held regarding proposed bylaws:

ZONING BYLAW AMENDMENT NO. 734, 2023 is proposed to update housing definitions and regulations.

Definitions of dwelling unit, single-detached, duplex, and multi-unit dwellings are updated to reflect common language and clarify the difference between types of dwellings, especially types of manufactured homes (mobile and modular) and secondary suites. The term “temporary” is moved from definitions to regulations and those regulations are updated. References to each of the terms wherever they are used in the bylaw form part of the proposed amendment.

ZONING BYLAW AMENDMENT NO. 735, 2023 is proposed to:

  • Replace the definitions of parcel, parcel lines, parcel area and parcel
    coverage with the terms lot, lot lines, lot area and lot coverage;
  • Replace the definitions of building lines with the definition of setbacks and yard; and
  • Define lot types;
  • Add definitions of awning, balcony, canopy, deck and building envelope to aid in calculating setbacks and lot coverage;
  • Add Figures 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 to illustrate and help explain each of lot lines, yards, lot types and the calculation of lot coverage; and
  • Add a definition of Floodplain setback as distinct from lot line setbacks.

All persons who believe their interest in the property is affected by the proposed amendment bylaws will be given a reasonable opportunity to be heard.

Members of the public can participate in the public hearing in-person or online and will be given an opportunity to speak on the bylaws.
