Comprehensive Review of Zoning By-Law (CRoZBy)

All owners should have received a package from the City of Kitchener regarding the zoning by-law review that may affect our building.  In short, our area of Kitchener is currently zoned Retail Core (D-1) and is changing to City Centre District (UGC-1).

This is a chance for us to help shape the laws that will govern how our neighbourhood is developed. The Board of Directors strongly encourages residents and owners to  return the feedback form included in the package and attend the drop-in sessions at Kitchener City Hall on June 22nd and 28th, from 4-8pm.

Here are some topics on which you may want to provide feedback or ask questions about:

  • Maximum building height
  • Privacy with respect to view from adjacent buildings
  • Requirements for mixed use at street level (i.e. shops and attractions to promote foot traffic)
  • Requirements for developers to provide green spaces
  • Noise by-law amendments

Feel free to add other topics via the Comments form .
