Phase 1 – Zoning Issues Analysis

In April 2014, Gladki Planning Associates (GPA) was retained by the City as the lead consultant to complete Phase 1 and Phase 2 (Strategic Direction). This work includes twenty discussion papers examining specific zoning issues and topics, including recommendations to guide the drafting of the new comprehensive zoning by-law.

Three Open Houses were held in Fall 2015, to present information and obtain input on the Phase 1 draft discussion papers.

On March 29, 2016, Markham’s Development Services Committee endorsed the Zoning Issues Analysis Report which summarizes the twenty draft discussion papers.
