In 1951 Hamilton City Council enacted the first comprehensive Zoning By-Law 6593. This By-law is still in force with a myriad of amendments and mutations. It is no wonder that we are hopelessly stuck. We may be the only City with a Zoning By-law that is 60 years old and counting. There was some initial optimism about the New Urban OP, with regards to adaptive reuse of older buildings, however this will not be the case. According to Al Fletcher one of the "architects" of this new zoning regime, the only relief will be the elimination of a rezoning fee. Everything else mentioned here in this article will remain.
