The 22-part proposal is much more comprehensive than the loning bylaws of most mu- nicipalities and compares with plus of many large cities. The plan and zoning policy will allow for the full develop- ment of the township and dis- trict in such a manner as to make it one of the most attrac- tive communities in Canada, planers said. The commission worked for more than three years on the proposals which include plan- ning for three tones in the itii- dential area. A low-density ?one is provid- ed for single-family homes; garden apartments and row houses will be in the medium- density zone; the high-density zone will provide for multiple family dwellings. Shops will be zoned into concentrated shopping centre. INDUSTRIAL Other facilities planned in the commercial area are: personal services, entertainment facili- ties and banks. Zones have been made avail able for light and heavy indus- trial uses and transport ter- minals. The proposed open land zone will provide for cemeteries and commercial recreation facili- ties. U is hoped the proposal will come before Cttincjl soon. After three readinp by coun- cil, the proposal, with revisions if necessary, will be available at the district office for study by anyone who may be inter- ested A public hearing will be held and anyone wishing to make suggestions at the hearing will be allowed to do so. Council will consider the dis- cussions during the bearings and make any changes it feels necessary. Then the proposal will become a bylaw.
