Menzies St.:
maintained with original
– City Sewer

appearance of the house in the

7) REZONING & BYLAWS STEPS
REZONING
•
•
•
•
The City has applicable zoning
and building requirements.
The owner has retained a team of
professional consultants, headed
up by Mr. John Ivison, P. Eng .
They will address the issues that
will arise in subsequent meetings
with the City Building and
Planning Departments.
The Team will prepare and submit
the required reports and or
documents.
The Team will develop an
agreement with the building
department before formal
submissions to the planning
process.
BYLAW
• The Engineering Team will be
pro-active in the meetings with
the City.
• Where literal requirements
cannot be met, the consultants
will present reasonable
alternatives to achieve the
intent.
• The owner is actively
canvassing the neighborhood
for feedback for the Rezoning
application.
Conclusion
• We intend to show the city, through an engineering and code review
process, that the building is a sound structure and should be allowed
to remain substantially “AS IS”.
• A recent Community poll has shown that the areas residents have
experienced no negative impact and they view the project positively
as it currently exists.
• Further to the previous point there are many community residents
that support an affordable, high density housing model and view it
as a positive impact to the area, and do not object to higher density
in the neighborhood.
• The building has been performing adequately without incident for
over 22 years and the engineering analysis indicates a lengthy life is
left in the building as it currently stands.
