Second public open house for Zoning By-law review scheduled for May 3 in Ameliasburgh

April 17, 2023

A second public open house for the Comprehensive Zoning By-law review project is set for Wednesday, May 3.

The open house will take place at the Ameliasburgh Town Hall (13 Coleman Street) from 7-9 pm.

The public open house is an opportunity for members of the community to get involved and provide preliminary input. This will be part of the first round of several open houses and public meetings that will be held in locations across the County in the coming months.

A zoning by-law is a legal document that establishes detailed standards for how a property may be developed. The County is undertaking the review in order to modernize the County’s zoning requirements, with consideration for new or revised definitions, zones, and development standards (e.g. building, lot, and parking requirements). The review will support the vision for future development in Prince Edward County and capture emerging planning issues.

The public open house will follow the similar format and topics as the first public open house held March 29 in Picton:

  • A brief presentation, beginning at 7:30 pm, by the County’s project consultant, WSP, including an overview of the Zoning By-law Review project, work plan, and summary of the draft discussion paper prepared for the project.
  • An open question and answer session with the project team and discussion on various zoning issues that the County is considering as part of the review.

Future public open houses will go into further depth on proposed zoning as it relates to individual properties.

Visit the County’s Have Your Say consultation platform to learn more and get involved in this project.

The draft discussion paper is available for review on the Have Your Say project page.

For those who may be unable to attend but wish to participate, the presentation boards will be made available on this webpage following the event. To submit questions or comments, please contact Michael Michaud, Manager of Planning, County of Prince Edward, at 613.476.2148 extension 2025 or email
