Motion To: Moved by / Motion de: Councillor Tierney Whereas the report from Planning Staff includes recommendations to the Committee of Adjustment with respect to their interpretation of Planning Act tests for approval of minor variances. Whereas the interpretation of the Planning Act tests should be made based on the specifics of any such application, independent of general influence by City Council. Therefore be it resolved that Planning Staff be directed to remove the following wording from the staff report prior to this matter rising to City Council: “All other things being equal, applications that seek many variances should be treated as less minor than those seeking fewer variances, even if the individual variances are each minor by themselves. The Committee should use its own judgment in determining whether a set of variances together exceeds the threshold for a "minor variance." However, the Committee is reminded that a minor rezoning process, with more thorough pu
