Downtown Zoning Open House - Tell Us What You Think!

Where: City Hall Antechamber, 1 Centennial Square

The City of Victoria is proposing a new Zoning Regulation Bylaw for Downtown, focused on the Central Business District, which covers a 15-block area of Downtown. You are invited to attend an open house to learn more about the proposed changes and to provide your feedback.

Why is the Zoning Regulation Bylaw Being Updated?

The Downtown Core Area Plan contains new policies to guide growth and development over the next 30 years. The new zoning regulations will implement the policies and vision for Downtown.

Proposed changes include new regulations for density and building height allowances, permitting more uses to accommodate a range of commercial, institutional, and residential space, and introducing regulations for building form that will encourage pedestrian activity and create special places.
