Development services review

Consultation has concluded

The downtown Kitchener skyline light up at night.

Kitchener is going through an extraordinary transformation that can be seen happening all around us. To ensure we are in the best position possible to respond to exciting changes to the community we serve, the city is undergoing a review of our development services.

Development services include things like: customer front counter services for engineering, planning, transportation, building and economic development, building permits, building inspections, business development, downtown development, special events, land development planning, review and approvals (e.g. site plans, subdivisions, zoning by-law amendments, official plan amendments, condominiums, demolition control, consent, committee of adjustment, community planning, environmental planning, and heritage planning), transportation services (e.g. cycling, traffic calming, parking), and parks and open space planning.

We will use this page to share important project updates and engage with you as we seek to bring a greater focus, coordination and accountability to our development functions.

Zoning for Place of Worship is a challenge these days. Its almost impossible to get new zoning close to Residential development area in Kitchener, where people of different faith can worship and congregate. City of Kitchener can become a role model in Canada , where Place of Worship belonging to different faith can be build at one location. e.g Temple, Mosque, Church, Gurdwara and Synagogue can co exist at one location. There should be a public consultation.

Please consider pledging to use exclusively Canadian labor for future development projects, and requiring your contractors to do so as well.
