Petition to Reject the Zone Change Application for 22 Weber St W
Please sign the petition calling on Kitchener City Council to reject the Zoning By-law and Official Plan Amendment application for 22 Weber Street submitted by 30 Duke Street Ltd. on page 2.

Background information:

Some of the proposed changes include:
- unlimited building height and number of storeys
- a front yard setback of 0.8m when the existing zoning requires 3m
- a maximum floor space ratio of 6.2 when the existing zoning allows 4
- 21 parking spaces when the existing zoning requires a minimum of 104
- 3 visitor parking spaces when the existing zoning requires a minimum of 21

Details, including Heritage Impact Assessment, site plans, perspective drawings and more are available at: https://oldeberlintown.ca/22WeberStW

Concerned neighbours believe the proposed zoning fails to provide an appropriate transition and threatens neighbourhood homes and properties, and, if accepted, would:

- encroach on the privacy of nearby residents and occupants
- block sunlight and cast shadows on nearby low-rise properties, businesses and homes
- diminish owner enjoyment on their property
- exacerbate wind tunnels on Weber, Roy and other streets
- increase pressure on parking on nearby streets
- detract from the ambience and character of the neighbourhood
- overpower heritage properties and harm the Heritage District
- compromise the viability of a stable neighbourhood
- set a dangerous precedent

Rejecting the application does not mean that the concerned neighbours reject other changes or developments in the Olde Berlin Town neighbourhood.
