The DUKE Heights BIA has undertaken a study of the current zoning By-law regime across the area, seeking to assist the City of Toronto identify and reduce obstacles to businesses operating in the area. This Zoning By-law review aims to:
- eliminate the overlap of two zoning By-laws — the City-wide By-law and the old North York By-law;
- address the onerous and confusing parking requirements;
- support a range of uses that facilitate business growth in the area;
- eliminate the holding By-law that applies to certain properties.
We hosted an Open House on June 04, 2019 to introduce the proposed changes to collect feedback from the members of the BIA. There will be more opportunities to view and respond to proposed changes during the Zoning By-law amendment process including future community open houses and public meetings as the City process unfolds.
