PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2018-02)

The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to permit the conversion of an existing building to a four (4) unit residential building. The property is currently zoned Highway Commercial (HC) and the existing building was constructed as a commercial building with one (1) accessory dwelling unit. There is an existing site plan agreement registered on title.

The effect is to rezone the subject lands from Highway Commercial (HC) to Highway Commercial-Exception Twenty-Eight-holding (HC-E28-h) and establish special provisions for the HC-E28 zone which permit a residential building with a maximum of four (4) residential dwelling units.

With the use of the holding symbol, the principle of development of the property would be established with the approval of the amendment but the holding symbol would remain in place on the zoning until the conditions to remove the holding are satisfied. 

The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 1423 Pembroke Street East (Provincial Highway 148), within Part Lot 12, Concession 2, geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
