That the recommend Council approve an amendment to the Zoning By-law 2008-250 to change the zoning of 1349 Triole Street from GM12 H(11), General Mixed-Use Zone, to IL2, Light Industrial Zone, as shown in Document 1.
RECOMMANDATIONS DU RAPPORT
Que le Comité de recommande au Conseil d’approuver une modification au Règlement de zonage 2008-250 afin de changer le zonage du 1349, rue Triole de GM12 H(11), Zone générale d’utilisations polyvalentes, à IL2, Zone d’industrie légère, comme il est indiqué dans le Document 1.
The property is currently used for the open storage of automobiles. Immediately to the north and south of the property are car rental lots. To the east is a building supplies business, and on the west side of Triole Street, is a five-storey office building. The surrounding area zone designations consist of AM, Arterial Mainstreet, primarily fronting onto St. Laurent Boulevard, GM, General Mixed-Use, to the north, and IL, Light Industrial, to the east and south.
The applicant proposes to expand the surface operation component of their building supply and distribution business located at 1418 Michael Street onto an adjacent property at 1349 Triole Street. The applicant has requested that the current GM12 H(11.0), General Mixed-Use Zone, be amended to an IL2, Light Industrial Zone, to accommodate the expansion of a building supplies business specializing in metal roofing, which is located on Michael Street.
The site is currently zoned GM12 H(11), which is a General Mixed Use Zone. The intent of this zone is to allow residential, commercial and institutional uses, or mixed use development on lands designated as General Urban Area on Schedule B in the Official Plan. The permitted uses are often large in nature and intended to serve or draw from broader areas and the surrounding community. These uses may also may generate traffic, noise or have other impacts on surround land uses.
The applicant is proposing to replace the current zoning with an IL2, Light Industrial Zone designation. The intent of this zone is to allow a wide range of low impact industrial uses including such activities as the manufacturing, processing, assembly or packaging of finished part or products. This zone designation also includes offices as a permitted use on lands designated as Employment Area on Schedule B in the Official Plan.
The Official Plan designation is Employment Area, which permits industrial and employment-generating uses, such as warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, communications, storage, construction, office, institutional, and research and development uses. The Official Plan encourages development on large size parcels of land so as to accommodate the expansions of businesses, which would include an expansion of the surface operation of an industrial use.
The proposed IL zone designation is consistent the Official Plan’s policy objectives to attain employment targets of 2000 jobs within areas of the city designated as Employment Area. This is contained within the purpose statement of this zone designation, and reflected in the structuring and detailing of the zone.
This site is currently used for the -storage of automobiles. The applicant is proposing to relocate the surface operation for the staging of tractor trailer, and the incoming and outgoing deliveries of roofing supplies currently occurring at 1418 Michael Street, to 1349 Triole Street. The existing and proposed activities are similar in nature and there are no anticipated negative impacts or land use conflicts resulting from the 1418 Michael Street surface operation expansion at this location
The property at 1349 Triole Street enables the principle operation at 1418 Michael Street to have direct access to St. Laurent Boulevard, via Tremblay Road. This will enable the diversion of the heavy vehicle component of their operation away from Michael Street which has existing residences on its east side.
In summary, staff is satisfied that the proposed zoning amendment for 1349 Triole Street is consistent with the policies contained within the Official Plan and is therefore recommended for approval.
The Ward Councillor is aware of this application and the staff recommendation.
There are no legal/risk management implications associated with this report.
The recommended re-zoning is in keeping with the City Strategic Plan for priority of a Sustainable, Healthy and Active City.
