Proposed Draft Zoning and Shoreline By-law Changes
- a maximum of four storeys near 25 Sideroad and gradually lowered to a maximum of two storeys near Lake Simcoe
- Enhanced setbacks to existing residential zones
- Provisions to support a traditional main street building form on Innisfil Beach Road
- Imposing restrictions on some uses (e.g. managing noise impacts)
An online survey has been provided for residents to provide feedback on the draft proposal.
- Even if residential properties are re-zoned to commercial, the residential taxation will not change until they are redeveloped with a commercial use. Where properties are vacant (where there are no buildings on a property) tax rates may shift when a rezoning occurs.
- Though expropriation is a tool available to the Town where justified and approved by Council, there are no plans to expropriate lands within the area currently affected by the ICB.
- The Interim Control By-law has only put a freeze on development on certain lands. It has no effect on the ability of an owner to sell or purchase lands. A re-zoning would not restrict a sale.
- Once the subject lands are re-zoned, you will still be able to renovate and obtain permits to maintain your home as a residential dwelling. However, where new non-residential development occurs, it would need to meet the new Zoning provisions.
