(May 16, 2022) Report from Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning

Summary

The Midtown Zoning Review is one of three initiatives currently underway to implement the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan (Official Plan Amendment 405), collectively known as "Ready, Set, Midtown". The other initiatives are the Midtown Infrastructure Implementation Strategy (MIIS) and the Midtown Parks and Public Realm Strategy. The purpose of this report is to bring forward the recommended zoning by-law amendment for the 'Villages' Character Areas of the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan for adoption. The report outlines the process undertaken to arrive at the recommended zoning by-law, including engagement and consultation, and outlines next steps in advancing zoning for further areas of the Secondary Plan. The recommended zoning by-law amendment simplifies the existing layered zoning by-laws, by reducing references to prevailing zoning by-laws, and eliminating duplication and redundancy. The intended result is a more user-friendly zoning by-law for the public, staff and applicants.

 

The recommended zoning by-law amendment is consistent with the Official Plan Provincial Policy Statement and conforms to A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
