Note that prior to to the draft bylaw being given readings on May 31, the 1100-block of Elm Street (east side of Elm Street) was changed by Council to remain in the current "Waterfront Village" land use designation instead of changing to the "Mature Neighbourhood" land use designation, and a policy was added that new development proposals in the area would be required to show consideration in their design for the heritage context of existing buildings in the area. The Waterfront Village land use designation would allow a maximum 3 storey building (below grade parking levels not included in the number of storeys).
