RE: 836-838 Broughton Street Rezoning
I feel this issue is the kind of technicality that would not be noted by the casual observer.
For that reason, and for the fact that the City is amending the zoning to suit, in my view there should be no reason for community objection.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention,

Subject: City-Initiated Amendment to the RMD-1 Zone (836-838 Broughton Street)
Further to our conversation this morning, the City has initiated minor amendments to the RMD-1 Zone for 836-838 Broughton Street. In the Council approved plans for Rezoning Application #00425 and Development Permit #000337 for this site, the building has balconies on the east side, front and rear elevations. There was a drafting error in the RMD-1 Zone, which does not allow balconies to project into setbacks, and the zone is being amended to be consistent with the approved plans. We are also make minor changes to wording related to amenity contributions to avoid any ambiguity.
I am attaching the Council Meeting Minutes for Rezoning Application #00425 for your reference.
All the best,
