City seeking public input on zoning amendment for Lasalle Boulevard

Amendment seeks to create a new zoning framework for the corridor and introduce a requirement to have new buildings built closer to the street

The City of Greater Sudbury is seeking the public’s input on next steps for the Lasalle Boulevard Corridor Plan and Strategy.

Endorsed by council in 2018 and adopted as an Official Plan amendment in April 2020, the strategy seeks to adopt a “new vision” for Lasalle Boulevard that will see a new land-use framework that includes more public transit infrastructure and policies for improve the look and use of public and private lands, the city said in a release to media.

As part of the strategy, the city is considering an amendment to zoning bylaw 2010-100Z, which would rezone certain parcels of land along the Lasalle corridor to C2, or General Commercial Special, and introduce a requirement that any new buildings be built closer to the street.

The city is hosting virtual public feedback sessions over Zoom in May:

Tuesday, May 4, 5 to 8 p.m.

Wednesday, May 5, 1 to 4 p.m.

Those who are unable to attend a session but wish to provide feedback can view the presentation and related documents, and submit feedback using the city’s OverToYou portal until 11:59 p.m. on May 10.

The amended bylaw will be presented to council for its consideration in the third quarter of this fiscal year.
