Staff of the City’s Growth and Community Development Service will be presenting ZoneSJ, the city’s new draft zoning bylaw, at tonight’s common council meeting, Tuesday, October 15, 2013.
The bylaw will not be adopted immediately. The fall is a testing period for the draft bylaw, which will involve a broad range of public, industry and agency specific reviews, as well as third party professional planning reviews of the proposed community standards.
Public open houses are scheduled for October 30 through to November 7 in each ward where citizens can learn about the proposed changes. Saint John residents will receive a postcard in the mail this week with details of the open houses.
Information, maps and guides of the draft zoning bylaw, as well as the complete draft bylaw document, are all available on the city’s website at www.saintjohn.ca/zonesj
