Explanation of Purpose and Effect of By-Law 2017-127

The Purpose and Effect of this By-law is to introduce a Place of Assembly and Recreation use at 525 Boundary Road requires a Site Specific Zoning exception to the Manufacturing 40 (MFR 40) zoning associated with the site. The exception is required because the regulations of the current zoning do not speak to the nature of proposed activities (Cornwall Gymnastics Club). The Planning Division has reviewed the application along with relevant supporting documentation, and has come to the conclusion that:

i. The intended Place of Assembly and Recreation use is generally meeting the intent of the Industrial Designation policies in relation to service commercial uses.

ii. The site location, ease of access and abundance of designated parking support the rezoning. This is an opportunity to re-purpose a vacant portion of a low intensity industrial development with a service commercial use component which should not interfere with existing and future operations within the building. The building is in good standing (structurally) and there are no known past industrial uses that were contained on site or located in the immediate vicinity that would be a cause of concern for the health of the general public that would frequent the site

iii. The Place of Assembly and Recreation use establishing in a manufacturing zone is consistent with past decisions.
