Updating Tall Building Setbacks - Community Consultation Meeting

City Planning is hosting a community consultation meeting for the Official Plan Amendment and Zoning Bylaw Amendments on updating tall building setbacks. Tall buildings are often proposed in the Downtown and this community consultation will be presenting the Official Plan Amendment policies and Zoning Bylaw Amendments that will set out required setbacks from property lines, and between 2 or more towers on a single site.

Appropriate separation distances between towers minimizes negative impacts on the public realm and neighbouring properties, such as adverse shadowing, pedestrian-level wind and blockage of sky view.

 

Details for the Community Consultation are as follows:

DATE:                    Tuesday, July 19, 2016
TIME:                     7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
PLACE:                  Metro Hall, 55 John Street, Room 308

 

A presentation will be given followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and provide feedback.
