Residential Zones Project - Reimagining Neighbourhoods

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Residential zoning is changing across the City. The permissions for the types of housing that can be located throughout a neighbourhood are expanding to support growth in a more responsible and equitable way. The City’s Residential Zones Project is looking at how different types of housing can be built within and along the edges of neighbourhoods. Reimagining Neighbourhoods is about providing housing choice and more affordable housing options for the residents of Hamilton.

Through the Residential Zones Project, we’re reimagining neighbourhoods across the city. Watch the video to learn more about what creating more housing choice within our neighbourhoods means.

Within neighbourhoods, housing choice may mean more than one home on a property, the ability to convert a home into more units, or build a triplex or fourplex. Along the edge of neighbourhoods, it may mean townhouses or mid rise apartment or condominium buildings that take advantage of transit and help to create a more walkable environment. Learn more about the Residential Zones Project.
