That the Planning and Development Committee recommend Council:
1. Approve a new Zoning By-law to replace By-law 140-93 for the Hazeldean Industrial Park which would change all imperial measurements to metric, move all general development provisions to one section, and reword definitions and provisions to correspond with other business parks;
2. Permit an Auto Body Repair Centre on 33 Edgewater Street;
3. That the Planning and Development Committee recommend Council repeal Zoning By-law 140-93.
1. d’approuver un nouveau règlement municipal de zonage en vue de remplacer le Règlement municipal 140-93 quant au parc industriel Hazeldean qui convertirait les mesures impériales en mesures métriques, regrouperait toutes les dispositions relatives à l’aménagement général dans une section et reformulerait les définitions et les dispositions afin qu’elles soient conformes à celles des autres parcs industriels;
2. de permettre un centre de réparation de carrosserie au 33, rue Edgewater;
3. d’abroger le Règlement municipal 140-93.
The Department has initiated an application to replace Zoning By-law 140-93, the Hazeldean Industrial Park Zoning By-law. The subject lands are located east of Terry Fox Drive and north of Hazeldean Road, on the southwestern edge of the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community.
The current zoning for the Hazeldean Industrial Park was inherited from the Township of Goulbourn when the City of Kanata was created in 1978. The by-law has changed very little over the past 23 years with the exception of site specific amendments that have been created to accommodate the changes in this part of Kanata. There is now a need to replace Zoning By-law 140-93, with a new by-law. This will ensure that the development standards will be consistent with the other business park by-laws for the former City of Kanata.
As the Hazeldean Industrial Park has evolved, the number of commercial uses has increased. Uses such as automotive repair, storage facilities and restaurants have now located along both Terry Fox Drive and Edgewater Street. The area has been undergoing a transition from a rural industrial park, located on the fringe of the urban community to a commercial-industrial service node. The transformation of the Hazeldean Industrial Park has outpaced the modernization of the Zoning By-law that governs the uses and provisions of the properties within the park.
Four significant updates will be made to the Hazeldean Industrial Park By-law. None of these updates will significantly change the intent of Zoning By-law 140-93.
By-law 140-93 dates from the 1960s with the original by-law containing imperial measurements and more recent amendments being metric. Therefore, all measurements will be changed to metric in the proposed amendment.
The second significant change to the by-law is that the format will be changed. Some of the provisions within the by-law are located in sections other than the General Provisions Section. These provisions will be moved into one section that will result in sections of the Hazeldean Industrial Park Zoning By-law being rewritten to reflect the format of the other by-laws within the former City of Kanata.
The wording of some of the provisions and definitions will be changed to be consistent with those of other zoning by-laws within the former City of Kanata. Definitions for the various kinds of restaurant uses have been added to recognize the different types of eating establishments within the Business Park. These changes do not to alter the original intent of the definitions and the provisions as originally set out in Zoning By-law 140-93 and its predecessors, but creates consistency amongst the by-laws of the former City of Kanata.
The final change to this by-law affects 33 Edgewater Street, legally described as Concession 12, Part of Lot 30, RP 5R-8626, Part 1. The current use on this site is an automotive body repair centre, which is not a permitted use for this property. The use was one of the first in the Business Park and was built in the 1980’s. The Automotive Body Repair Centre use will be added to the permitted uses for this site, as well as the provisions that have been applied to this site previously. This will bring the site into conformity with the zoning by-law.
No sites will be rendered non-conforming as a result of the updating of this by-law.
As part of the Zoning By-law process, notification via the mail was sent out to all the property owners within the Hazeldean Industrial Park and to 140 residents and business owners in the surrounding communities.
Included as part of the technical circulation, the Katimavik-Hazeldean Community Association was notified of the changes to the zoning by-law, as was the Ward Councillor. No concerns regarding the written changes to the by-law were received as a result of this circulation
A meeting was held with the landowners on November 5, 2001, who were all notified by mail and sent a copy of the draft zoning by-law. Some minor concerns raised by one landowner will be addressed in the by-law.
