The Chamber applauds City Council for approving the new Zoning By-law which we believe takes significant steps towards our shared vision of walkable, mixed-use, mixed-income neighbourhoods.

The Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce enthusiastically endorses the approval of the new Zoning By-Law.

The Chamber applauds City Council for approving the new Zoning By-law which we believe takes significant steps towards our shared vision of walkable, mixed-use, mixed-income neighbourhoods.

The Urban Mixed-Use Zone provides needed flexibility to encourage small scale, pedestrian oriented businesses within established neighbourhoods while the revisions to urban low-rise, mid-rise and high-rise zones can address our shortage of affordable housing and enhance opportunities for increased neighbourhood density to improve both the environmental and economic efficiency of our community.

The Chamber will continue to advocate to City Council to further reduce barriers to development through the creation of an expedited approvals process for applications that align with the Urban Mixed-Use Zone criteria and by ensuring flexibility in staff limits for home-based business.
