Zoning changes will be required to accommodate the provincial legislation C-23
This week at Planning and Housing Committee we discussed the upcoming zoning changes that will be required to accommodate the provincial legislation, C-23 as well as to fit in with the city’s objectives from our New Official Plan. I appreciate the emphasis we are putting on keeping green spaces primarily for growing trees in order to ensure our tree canopy. The target we have set is 40% tree canopy which is important as we set more intensification. There will be open houses for residents as well as online engagement.

My office will keep everyone informed once dates are announced over the summer and fall. There is much work to do in a short timeframe however we need to keep in mind that the end goal is more housing for all and keeping our communities as liveable as possible.
