Moved by: Councillor Beros

  • Whereas car shelters are “accessory structures” under City Zoning By-laws and are not permitted in front yards. They are permitted in side and rear yards to a limited extent provided certain conditions are met;

    Whereas the City is currently starting work toward the development of a Comprehensive Zoning By-law;

    Whereas the potential to allow these car shelters in front yards will be reviewed as part of that process; however, the process is expected to take 3 to 5 years;

    Whereas in light of Covid-19, many residents are working remotely which means their vehicles are always parked in their driveways;

    Whereas residents living on Delphinium Avenue have completed a petition to approve the use of a temporary car shelter for the upcoming winter months;

    Whereas 87.5% of residents on Delphinium Ave have signed the petition and are in favour of temporary car shelters;

    Whereas permitting residents the ability to erect a temporary car shelter for the winter months will not have any impact on any other programs or neighboring streets;

    Now Therefore Be it Resolved:

    That Council approve and direct staff to enact a pilot project on Delphinium Avenue from December 9th to March 31st inclusive to permit the use of temporary car shelters on front driveways.
