This project will update the development regulations for the multi-dwelling zones and street connectivity requirements to improve the form and design of new development. Project staff will be seeking public input to help inform the development of regulations through a range of public involvement activities, such as workshops, working group meetings and open house events. Please check the website for updates on project events.
The public can inform what kind of improvements are proposed by sharing their experience about living in and around buildings built under the current code, suggesting solutions to the specific problems addressed by this project, and/or providing information about possible unintended outcomes of proposed changes. This input will mostly be used to develop and improve the proposed solutions and can also potentially affect the content and prioritization of the list of issues. However, the development of proposed solutions will require consideration of the full range of community input (often contradictory) as well as city policy objectives.
