Zoning bylaw project hosts public open houses
The City of Toronto is creating a single zoning bylaw and is seeking public
input. People can find out about the zoning bylaw project and how to get
involved by attending any of five open houses.

Toronto has embarked on a several year project to develop one single zoning
bylaw for the entire City. One zoning bylaw will replace 41 bylaws inherited
from former municipalities. Staff can better respond to public inquiries and
issue building permits working with one zoning bylaw rather than 41 bylaws. The
purpose of zoning bylaws is to regulate the use, size, height, density and
location of buildings on properties.

At the open houses the public will hear about the project and their role in
helping to create a better bylaw. Staff will demonstrate the interactive zoning
bylaw web site at and show how to use
the on-line feedback form to comment on the work that has been done to date.
