Public open houses and electronic consultation for draft of Toronto's new zoning bylaw
Beginning June 2, open houses will be held for the public to attend, speak with staff, ask questions, review and comment on the City of Toronto's draft new zoning bylaw. Residents also have the opportunity to review and comment electronically on the draft new bylaw at www.toronto.ca/zoning.
The City of Toronto currently has 43 different zoning bylaws inherited from the six pre-amalgamation municipalities.This new draft zoning bylaw is the result of a harmonization exercise with the emphasis on establishing a common terminology, structure and set of defined zoning terms that apply across the city. The new zoning bylaw will replace the current 43 bylaws.
The new draft zoning bylaw attempts to maintain current development standards (height, density, setbacks and use), and make the bylaw and the system more efficient for use by staff, customers and citizens.
Residents and other stakeholders are encouraged to participate in the public consultation process by attending one of the open houses or by providing comments online.
The purpose of zoning bylaws is to regulate the use, size, height, density and location of buildings on properties. With new online access to the bylaw (once its approved), it will be easier for anyone to search for zoning information on a property of interest.
Open house dates Etobicoke York District:
June 10 - Etobicoke Civic Centre
June 17 - Etobicoke Civic Centre
All meetings are from 4 to 9 p.m.
