Why is the City reviewing Commercial Zoning?

While existing commercial regulations are working well for many businesses, changing commercial needs and preferences present an opportunity to review the Zoning Bylaw for possible improvements.

The Review covers the Commercial, Service Commercial and Service Station zones, as well as other relevant regulations and definitions in the Zoning Bylaw. The Review does not cover industrial zones, parking and loading requirements, signage, business licensing costs and procedures, or commercial taxation rates.
