The new draft and the interactive map are easy to read and understand. I feel like the zoning could be more consistent and realistic. For example, many lots on Fisher, which is a busy street, are zoned N3B. Whereas the local streets like Dorchester, Emperor, etc are mostly zoned N4. Some less busy streets like Sunnyside are zoned CM. It's not clear what is the criteria to set these zones. If we want a walkable neighborhood, I think we should allow more commercial uses along Fisher as this area does not have a lot stores.

Thank you for creating this easy-to-understand tool. I have a few questions regarding the new zoning bylaw. In most suburb areas the maximum height is 11m under the current zoning, and it will be reduced to 8.5 m in the new zoning. On 7108 Notre Dame Street in Orleans, for example, the Zoning changes from R2N to N1B. Both of these changes are heading wrong direction if we are talking about increasing housing.
On two large lots in Bells Corners, 510 and 512 Moodie Drive current zoning is R1FF and it changes to N2E, while this is a step up in density, I think the change should be more significant. These lots are extra large, surrounded by R3 and R4 lots on all 4 sides, located on the main street, and can be efficiently redeveloped into small or midrise apartment buildings.
