Boarding House Study & SRO

The City, with its consultant MHBC Planning, has undertaken a study of hotels/motels that are currently being used as residences for all or part of the year.  A New land use, a Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Building, is proposed to define and describe these uses.  Amendments to the Official Plan, Zoning By-law No. 79-200 and Licensing By-law No. 2001-31 are proposed to regulate SROs.

An OPEN HOUSE is was held on March 18, 2019 (Notice of Open House) .
