zoning bylawReview and amend the zoning by-law to allow residential construction “as-of-right” over commercial sites. This means building new multi-unit housing would become a permitted use above the first-story, removing the requirement for a re0zoning application and public hearing.

The bylaw changes will encourage development of infill housing which is anticipated to be more sustainable than alternative forms of growth. This will reduce the financial burden of site servicing costs for the city in the long-term. The introduction of residential units in commercial areas will encourage urban renewal, especially in the core areas, and contribute to the creation of complete communities.
