236 Richmond Road

The application for 236 Richmond Road will be going forward to the Planning Committee On December 10, 2013.  The scheduling of the meeting is available online along with further details about the development proposal.

Based on the council approved Secondary Plan, 236 Richmond Road is zoned for 4 to 6 stories.  The applicant is asking for 9 stories.  This represents an increase in allowed height from 15 meters to 32.5 metres.  City Staff is fully on board with this request as the staff report shows.  Hampton Iona Community Group has come out against this rezoning request and hired Dennis Jacobs to provide his professional planners review of the application.  Mr. Jacobs cited several reasons as to why this rezoning request was inappropriate.  All of his positions were ignored by Staff.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
