What are the zoning requirements for properties located in Transit-Oriented Areas?

The legislation prescribes minimum allowable densities (expressed in Floor Area Ratio), and heights (expressed in number of storeys) and removes required minimum residential parking rates. The City is not required to make any further changes to zoning regulations; however, further changes may be contemplated in the course of implementing the legislation. In addition, requirements may vary by zone and Transit-Oriented Areas. 

Please also see the responses to Questions 2 and 4 and refer to the Zoning Bylaw for current zoning regulations.
