THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Process, attached as Document 1, to report ACS2012-ICS-PGM-0045 be amended as follows:

 

1.    Part 3.0 – Definitions be amended by replacing the definition of “Tower” with the following:

 

Tower for an Antenna System – means all types of towers including but not limited to: a monopole; tripole; lattice tower; guyed tower; self-supported tower; pole; mast; or other structure, which are used to support one or more antennas and may be located at ground level or attached to a building or structure.

2.    Part 4.0 – Exemptions to the City of Ottawa Municipal Concurrence and Public Consultation Process be amended by replacing Part 4.1(a)(ii) with the following:

 

“(ii) complies with all of the applicable guidelines set out within Part 5.1 and is not expected to contain medium or high white intensity lighting for the purposes of satisfying Transport Canada requirements;”

 

3.    Part 5.0 – Site Selection and Design Guidelines be amended by replacing all of the text under the heading Part 5.1 – Residential Use Antenna Systems (RUAS) with the following:

 

The purpose of these guidelines is to encourage the development of RUAS in a manner which mitigates the visual impact on the adjacent property owners.

 

A proponent of an RUAS proposed on a lot less than 1 acre in size should ensure the RUAS:

 

a)    If located within the front yard:

                                       i.     Contains only a self-supporting (non-guyed) mast or pole with a diameter no greater than 3 inches at its widest point and used solely for a wire antenna;

                                     ii.     is less than 15 metres in height; and,

                                   iii.     is set back at least 1.5 metres from all lot lines;

b)    If located within a side yard, including the extension of a corner side yard into a rear yard:

                                       i.      is set back at least 1.5 metres from all lot lines;

                                     ii.      is less than 15 metres in height; and,

                                   iii.     does not consist of a guyed or lattice tower, unless the tower abuts and is attached to the principal building;

c)    If located within the rear yard, excluding the extension of a corner side yard into a rear yard:

                                       i.     is less than 18 metres in height; and,

                                     ii.     is set back at least 1.5 metres from all lot lines if less than 16 metres in height; or

                                   iii.     is set back an amount equal to a quarter of its height if 16 metres or more in height; and,

d)    A wire antenna, not including a tower, need not comply with (a) through (c) above

e)    if located on the roof of the principal building:

                                       i.     is less than 16 metres in height, and if 15 metres or more in height:

1.         is located on that half of the roof closest to the rear yard; and,

2.         is setback from all lot lines at least 1.5 metres; or

                                     ii.     if the building is greater than 3 storeys in height, the RUAS does not exceed a height equal to 25% of the existing height of the building.

 

A proponent of an RUAS proposed on a lot at least 1 acre, but less than 5 acres in size should ensure the RUAS:

 

a)    is no higher than an amount equal to the lot width to a maximum of 29 metres;

b)   if it includes a guyed or lattice tower, is located outside of the required front yard; and,

c)    is set back from all lot lines an amount equal to a quarter of its height;

 

A proponent of an RUAS proposed on a lot 5 acres or more in size should ensure the RUAS is:

 

a)      no higher than 29 metres; and,

b)   setback from all lot lines an amount equal to a quarter of its height;

 

In all instances a proponent of an RUAS should:

 

a)      ensure the RUAS carries no advertising, flags (unless a flagpole is being used as a tower), graphics or other such devices, as well as permanent lighting above five metres;

b)      avoid placement of an RUAS within:

                                  i.          Natural Environment Areas, Significant Wetlands or Urban Natural Features as shown on Schedules A & B of the Official Plan;

                                ii.          Any 1:100 year flood plain, and Unstable Slopes shown on Schedule K of the Official Plan;

                              iii.          significant habitat of endangered and threatened species as defined in Section 4.7.4 of the Official Plan; and,

                              iv.          30 metres to the normal highwater mark or 15 metres to the top of the bank of any watercourse or waterbody, whichever is greater.

 

Where a proposal for an RUAS does not conform to all of the applicable guidelines above, it should be designed so as to mitigate negative impacts on the surrounding properties and the environment, including but not limited to decreasing the size and visibility of the RUAS, or selecting an alternate location on the property. To reduce the scale and visual impact mitigation measures could include the installation of screening and landscaping, the application of appropriate design features, colour and materials. Non-reflective surfaces and neutral colours that blend with the surrounding should be used.”

 

4.    Part 8.0 – Public Consultation be amended by inserting the following paragraph in Part 8.1 – Public Consultation for Residential Use Antenna Systems (RUAS) after Part 8.1f), and before the paragraph which begins “Despite the notification requirements of Part 8.1…”:

 

“In addition to the above, where a proponent expects that an RUAS will contain medium or high white intensity lighting for the purposes of satisfying Transport Canada requirements, the proponent must also undertake public consultation in accordance with Part 8.2.4 – Notice in Local Community Newspaper.”
