Notice of Meeting: Second Draft Zoning By-law

Posted On Thursday August 12, 2021

The City of Cornwall’s Planning Advisory and Hearing Committee (PAC) will hold a meeting, open to the public, on Monday, August 16th, 2021, at 7 p.m., in Salon B of the Cornwall Civic Complex (Lower Concourse). The purpose of the meeting is to consider the Second Draft Zoning By-law document and Zoning Map prepared as part of the City’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law Review. Please note that this is not the Statutory Public Meeting for the Comprehensive Zoning By-law Review under Section 34 of the Planning Act, which will be held later in the project process.

At the meeting, the Second Draft Zoning By-law will be presented to the PAC for endorsement. A virtual presentation will be provided by WSP. The Second Draft Zoning By-law was prepared in accordance with the recommendations set out in the Zoning Strategy Report (September 2020), which was presented to PAC on September 21, 2020, as well as comments on the First Draft Zoning By-law received from members of the public through a virtual Public Open House and online survey held from February 1 through February 14, 2021, and from PAC at a meeting on February 16, 2021.

The Second Draft Zoning By-law and Zoning Map are available for review on the City’s website at  A virtual Public Open House will be held in August 2021, and will be the subject of a separate Notice.

Following PAC’s review and endorsement of the Second Draft Zoning By-law, and the virtual Public Open House, a Final Draft Zoning By-law will be prepared and presented to the public at a Statutory Public Open House in Fall 2021.
