The purpose and effect of this zoning by-law amendment will be to remove from the Zoning By-law a regulation which currently prohibits amplified and electronic music, dancing and other forms of entertainment on patios. This change would implement one action from the Music, Entertainment and Culture Districts Strategy approved on March 21, 2017 by City Council.
The intent is to put noise and hours of operation regulations in the Noise By-law instead of the Zoning By-law. Proposed amendments to Noise By-law PW12 will be considered separately at an upcoming meeting of the Community and Protective Services Committee.
Remove Clause 5) “Entertainment” from Section 4.18 (Outdoor Patio Associated with a Restaurant or Tavern) of Zoning By-law Z-1.
By letter dated May 2, 2017, you were informed of the possible amendment described above.
