Municipal Shelters Public Consultation

This is to provide an update on November city-wide consultations being undertaken on Municipal Shelters.

Municipal Shelters

The current zoning regulations permit municipal shelters in most zones, with two locational conditions:

o 250-metre separation distance from another shelter

o requirement to be located either on a major street or on an intersecting street if the lot is within 80 metres of the major street

City staff were directed by City Council, at its meeting on December 5 to 8, 2017, to look at zoning by-law amendment options to provide more opportunities for locating shelters across the city. At its meeting on June 7, 2018, the Planning and Growth Management Committee directed staff to hold city-wide public consultations on the proposed options to increase the as-of-right zoning permissions for municipal shelters (PG30.8).

All meetings are from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and a short presentation will be held at 7 p.m.
