  • Permits Automobile Oriented Commercial and Building Supply Outlet uses south of Industrial Way only on parcels where the use currently exists or is under active development application with the District;
  • Increases the maximum permitted height from 10.68m to 15m in the I-11 zone;
  • Removes Drive Through as a permitted use in I-1 zone;
  • Prohibits Cannabis Production in the I-2 zone;

  • Establishes a setback of 30m for principal buildings exceeding the height of 10.68m from lot lines adjoining Yekwaupsum Reserve No. 19;
