Summary

This proposal is to amend the Zoning By-law to update the regulations respecting restaurants and related uses on Queen Street East between the east side of Woodbine Avenue and the west side of Nursewood Road in Ward 32.

 

Staff are recommending a number of amendments to the Zoning By-law which seek to balance the concerns of the residents and the business/property owners.  The cumulative effects of the amendments aim to continue to limit the overall impacts of restaurants and related uses on adjacent residential areas, while improving options and allowing opportunities for new restaurants and related uses to open and prosper.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of amendments to the Zoning Bylaw.
