On August 7, 2012, the Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) will consider two reports related to the implementation of a new B5B Zoning District and corresponding Architectural Control District (ACD) for the Broadway Commercial Area.  The first report recommends that the Zoning Bylaw No. 8770 be amended to add the proposed B5B and ACD.  The second report recommends that the properties currently zoned B5 in the Broadway Commercial Area be rezoned to B5B, and that the ACD be applied to these properties.

B5B Area MapThese reports, contained within the MPC agenda, can be found here.  The first report begins on page 36, and the second report begins on page 80.

Members of the public are welcome to attend MPC, which begins at 12:00 PM in Committee Room E of City Hall.  Those wishing to speak to the committee on this matter may do so by filling out a form provided by the MPC Clerk prior to the start of the meeting.  For more information, call the City Clerk’s Office at 975-3240.
