The approach of rezoning to an existing zoning district, or a zoning district change, is to help streamline processing.

Rezoning to an existing zoning district differs from rezoning to a site-specific (CD-1) district. A proposal’s form of development is not reviewed during the rezoning stage. The proposal is expected to comply with zoning regulations and associated guidelines, which will be fully reviewed at the development permit stage. This approach provides certainty on the built form for residents and applicants and streamlines the review process.

In some areas of the city, there are policies that allow for rezoning to an existing zoning district:
