A public information open house will be held March 11th at City Hall from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. The purpose of this open house is to present information on the background of the proposed bylaw and discuss potential impacts. 

A Public Hearing will be held on March 17th at City Hall at 8:30 am. Any member of the public who feels they may be affected by the proposed changes to the Zoning Bylaw may comment at that time.

  • Inserts a requirement for a dedicated, independent parking space for a secondary suite.
