The long-awaited zoning amendment report on Shared Rental Housing is available on the city website at:
Note: the Shared Rental Housing report begins on page 15.
This report will go as an Information Report to Council on Tuesday, August 3rd. Delegations will be heard, and public input will continue to be received prior to a decision being made on Monday, August 30th.
Why is this on the Council Planning Agenda?
The proposed regulations fall under the city Zoning By-law. Zoning is one tool that municipalities can use to regulate land use. Enforcement of by-laws (noise, property standards, parking, etc.) is also important. As well, licensing of rental housing is proposed as the next phase (Spring 2011) to ensure compliance.
Anyone wishing input into the Shared Rental Housing Zoning By-law amendment can submit comments in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or c/o Clerks Office at 1 Carden Street, Guelph, ON. You can also register as a delegation to speak at the Council meeting on August 3 or 30th.
