Notice of Public Meeting - Proposed Amendment to the Zoning By-Law

Notice of Public Meeting - Proposed Amendment to the Zoning By-Law 


Public Meeting

Monday April 8, 2019
6 p.m.
Town of Lincoln Council Chambers (Town Hall) 
4800 South Service Rd., Beamsville
 

Proposed Change

The Town is proposing the following amendments to the Zoning
By-law:

  • Repealing subsection 6.31 “Streets and Services” in its entirety;

  • Redefining subsection 4.245 “Public Use”; and
  • To renumber and add a new subsection into section 6 of the
  • By-law, entitled “Public Uses”.

The purpose of the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to update the provisions found in subsection 6.31, by more clearly and accurately defining those uses that are permitted. The proposed subsection will allow the Town to align itself with the public service facility policies in the Provincial Policy Statement. As the Town attracts more development and investment, new provisions are needed to accommodate public uses, as a result of that growth. This amendment will ensure that the Town will be able to continually provide municipal amenities, and public facilities for its residents.

The proposed definition of public use is as follows:

Public use means designed, adapted or used for civic, political, educational, social or recreational purposes, or for local or other such public use, and shall include a defence project, public hospital, police station, fire station, ambulance station, public works yard, waterworks, pumping station, street, alley, a school other than a commercial school, public park, library, museum, public art gallery, observatory, community centre, cemetery, mausoleum or other such public use. A public use shall not include any other institutional use or any commercial or industrial use, or any other non-public use.”
