Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Your input is needed on a proposed new district schedule format and language, new defined terms and removal of outdated regulations.

Regulation Redesign is modernizing the Zoning and Development By-law to make it easier to use and to make the regulations easier to find and understand. The new format and language are based on the principles of writing clear rules, using more diagrams, consolidating rules and organizing them intuitively, and applying consistent document standards. We are presenting for your feedback:

  • One new interactive district schedule format presented in four sample residential district schedules
  • Ten proposed new defined terms to clarify and simplify the language in the district schedules
  • Two outdated regulations to be considered for removal
