Neighbourhood Planning Review

The Civic Centre review involves the area containing the existing Civic Centre Secondary Plan and a portion of the Central Frederick Street Secondary Plan (in the area of Lancaster Street West). This new area is proposed to become the new Civic Centre Secondary Plan.

The proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law changes (including updated land use maps and policies, permitted uses and associated regulations) as well as urban design guidelines are now available for review and input. All background information including technical considerations (i.e. cultural heritage review), open house materials, highlights of process, summary of input and staff response are contained in an background information appendix document. If you have any questions or require further clarification regarding the proposed land use designation and zoning of your property please email secondaryplans@kitchener.ca.
