Notice of Waiver of Public Hearing
Zoning Bylaw Amendment Bylaw No. 8246, 2020
NOTICE OF WAIVER:
Notice is given under s. 464(2) of the Local Government Act that Council has waived the holding of a public hearing respecting Zoning Bylaw Amendment Bylaw No. 8246, 2020. This amendment would extend existing Zoning Bylaw relaxations of up to two parking spaces, or one loading space, until January 31, 2022, in order to facilitate patio space for food/beverage businesses on private property during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is part of the temporary Sidewalk/Street Patios and Parklet program, which includes relaxations to off-site and on-site parking requirements to accommodate patio space needed to support physical distancing for restaurants and other businesses. The current bylaw relaxation, approved June 22, 2020 during the first phase of COVID-19, expires on January 1, 2021. The bylaw extension to January 31, 2022 would support business recovery through the coming winter months and provide certainty through summer 2021, in alignment with the Provincial Restart Plan as well as the City's Recovery Plan.
